Wagon wheel pasta with basil, roasted tomatoes (harvested form my plants today!), garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and chile flakes. A few dear white wine and garlic sauteed chanterelles on top, some sort of salad with the cukes, scallions, and poblanos a coworker gave me from her farm. Summer, I will miss you!

I know! Food fresh from my garden, or given to me from friends and family and neighbors' gardens, or purchased at the farmers' market or from a CSA just tastes a million times better than any produce I can buy in the middle of the winter. I wish I could eat extra in the summer and then hibernate in the winter, both to skip the inferior food and bad weather.

I'm with you there! I also wish I was better at canning and preserving, but all I want to do is eat it while it's just-picked! And somehow when I freeze produce it just doesn't seem that exciting in the winter.

Last night for a snack I cut an x in the tops of my smaller tomatoes, shoved a slivered of garlic in each one and placed them in a mini-muffin pan, brushed them with olive oil and salt and pepper and roasted them. So delicious! No matter what I grow I'm always most obsessed with my tomatoes.

Tonight I think I'll do a chanterelle tofu scramble with braised baby bok choy and some glazed sesame tiny nugget potatoes.

That or cob corn with Korean barbecue tofu and those same potatoes.

We're having a Latin feast tonight!
- Red beans with Dominican-style sazon from Viva Vegan (with Trader Joe's soyrizo thrown in for good measure)
- Cilantro-lime brown rice from Viva Vegan
- Marinated mushroom tacos from 1,000 Vegan Recipes

Vijita, that tofu scramble with bok choy sounds insanely good!

Aardvark-BBQ doesn't sound vegan so I'm wondering if that's an autocorrect or something else entirely.

Tonight was another salad of green leaf, spicy coconut bacon, diced lemon cucumber, cherry tomatoes, tahini dressing & lemon juice PLUS I'm making a red jungle curry (thanks, freezer science!) with zucchini, crispy navy bean tempeh (!!), beet greens, more cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and chiles over jasmine rice. It's really for lunch tomorrow, but I'll probably have a small bowl since it's so early.

We had sauteed baby bok choy with chanterelles in garlic-lemon-cider sauce, soy chicken wings (the Chinatown kind, so good), roasted lemon potatoes.

The not vegan part was my poor attempt at a joke but I WAS trying to figure out what aardvark was an autocorrect for, LOL. Sounds delicious, though.

Yum! We developed a Secret Aardvark addiction on a 3 day trip to Portland. Now we order it by the 6 pack about once a year.
By secret aardvark BBQ soy curls, do you mean that you made a bbq sauce with aardvark sauce in it, or you doused the curls with ardvark sauce and threw them on the grill, or something else? I need details! Thanks!

I decided to fry some carrots in coconut oil. I don't know what came over me but they smell amazing.

I also did a baked ratatouille with my homegrown zuke, tomatoes, and eggplant.

Leftover weird "chicken" wings on a stick.

I bought some Gardine beefless strips because they are one of the few amaranth free Gardine products. My spouse offered to make dinner tonight, which turned out well, because I am having one of the worst allergy days of my life. He made a nice hot shiratake noodle dish with veggies and the Gardine. The hot peppers helped clear my sinuses and numb my throat.

I made mini pizzas using round seeded pittas for the base, sun-dried tomato paste for the sauce with sweetcorn, olives, kale and lashings of vegusto piquant. They were amazeballs.

Wait, I thought rasam was a South Indian specialty. What is North Indian rasam like?
