Tonight was a garden dinner. The squash is growing
better than ever. You can see how tall and strong the plants
are in front of Tom. To the right, next to Tom,
are the tomatillos. They are well over six feet tall.
I'll write more on them later.
All of a sudden the zucchini and yellow squash has been coming in
along with our first Cherokee purple heirloom tomatoes.
I have another very large one in the fridge, reserved for bread.
I am going to collect a few smaller ones to make zucchini
sausage and cheese boats.
I had the last of our lettuce in the side garden so I made
a quick salad with tomatoes and peppers.
Tom sliced the zucchini and dipped them in his beer batter.
He uses 1/2 flour and 1/2 Italian bread crumbs,
baking powder and beer and then fried them in Crisco.
They were light and tender, the beer batter puffing up
nice and crispy.
I sprinkled them with parmesean and added a red sauce.
Delicious, you hardly realized there was not an ounce of meat.
