Rainy Days and Mondays, II: Favorite Summer Foods — 11 Comments

  1. It is true – some days it is hard to find the words! But I love your post! Nice summer dishes! And I think I figured out a way to try a non-spicy version of harissa…

  2. I say: Hey babe take a walk on the wilde side do dodo do dododo do dodo do dododo doo. I just remember these words on a rainy day….

  3. Well, you just did a great job of putting together some words about not having any words! I too have been eating many cherry tomatoes; they’re in a bowl on my counter, and just about every time I walk by them, I pop a couple in my mouth. Sweet little jewels they are.

  4. For every day the words don’t come, there’s another day when they spill out easily — which is how the writer’s universe stays in balance. In the meantime, you’ve been having fun with vegetables in the kitchen, and that’s fun for us, too! (And I’m with Susan — I keep the cherry tomatoes in a bowl on my table, and pop a few in my mouth whenever I walk by.)

  5. JennDZ, Thanks, hmmm non-spicy harissa, I’m intrigued.
    Susan, they’ve always been my favorite garden snack…while working in the garden, just walk by the plant and pause for a nibble!
    Okay, Ulrike, now I have an ear worm….
    Lydia, I keep forgetting the ‘whole balance of the Universe thing’, thanks for the reminder!
    Thanks, Kevin…it’s my favorite!

  6. I agree with Kevin about the potato salad. I have some chevre and potatoes in my fridge, but I need some mushrooms: thanks for the recipe! I thinks words are like clouds: they come, they go, sometimes they stay a bit, but there is always more forming somewhere.

  7. Photos like you’ve got here Katie don’t need so many words. Your story is really beautiful, as beautiful as the photos. It is special to have that memory and then be able to write about it with the same feeling as that 8 year old!

  8. That is a terrific line up of salads! I want to try each one and I so envy all the freshness that comes out of your garden! Oh! Just to have basil not from the store would be enough for me 🙂
    Hi to Boris!

  9. The photographs here make me hungry. They are so well taken and look scrumptious! I love to grill and the pictures of the grilled peppers and onions are so nice.

  10. Simona, hope you enjoy the salad, let me know what you think. Words have been elusive lately, except for at 3:00am….
    Tanna, thanks, it’s all about the food! And I’m still 8 at times LOL
    Joey, Boris says hey back… he’s in the same spot every day, blinking at me.
    Mat, thanks, grilled veggies are the best, and thanks about the pics!
