And I discover my sunny yellow, pear shaped tomatoes have started to ripen too.
Even with 3 seasons under my belt, it still gives me a thrill to find real food growing right here in my tiny garden. Yesterday's harvest. New red potatoes, zucchini, my fun multi-colored carrots, 2 remaining purple beans, a snap pea and a newly ripened cherry tomato.
So how do I choose to prepare it for lunch?
Deep fry it. Oh my! It almost seems a shame to alter it with hot oil, but have you ever tasted fried zucchini with a side of Boursin cheese?
Might as well fry up the potatoes too while I'm at it, and add a little side of BBQ sauce for dipping.
It's enough to make a health conscious chef faint dead away. But still, it was pretty good.
