Summertime Cooking

Between the heat, rain, and being busy, we haven't had much time to cook/grill. We're still making very simple, but tasty meals, and dining out and bringing home leftovers, which makes meals super easy!
There was a birthday dinner for SP's sister at Aladdin's. As usual, despite the heat & humidity, SP ordered the V Nine Soup.

SP's dad and sister shared a stinky garlicky dish - Loubie Bzeit - bleah!

I enjoyed my usual Aladdin's meal: eggplant pitza.

CSA squash blossoms, filled with ricotta, then breaded and sauteed in vegetable oil. We used this breading & oil because we made the blossoms when we made breaded chicken tenders.

Breaded chicken tenders.

Olive Oil Bread from the Market District Bakery. I think I like this bread better than the Tuscany Bread.

Zucchini grilled inside on our grill pan.

Cucumbers in sour cream-balsamic-dill dressing. We were trying to use up the sour cream.

CSA green/white beans, steamed.

Lemon Pound Cake with blueberries, blackberries, and whipped cream.

Pasta Salad - this time with Tri Color Bow Ties, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, artichokes, kalamatas, feta, roasted red peppers, basil, chives, thyme

Cherry Chocolate Shortbread Cookies.
