What's For Dinner? Plus What We Picked Up at the Orchard!

From the Orchard

This morning Alexis and I set off to go over the mountain to the library. While we were over there we also decided that it would be a good idea to stop by the orchard. Her mission: Peas! (And as you can see we found them!) My mission: Blueberries to make some jam! (We got those too! And the jam turned out great...You'll see it tomorrow!)

We also got some small plums, yellow beans, cucumbers, yellow tomatoes and "ugly" tomatoes. What are those you ask? Those are the ones that some people won't buy because they have a vein here or a spot there. Perfectly good, perfectly delicious vine ripe tomatoes that some people are too snobby to buy! So for a dollar more, you get twice as many tomatoes. Works for me!

Now let's talk about What's For Dinner?....


Alexis and Jamison want spaghetti for dinner. At first I wasn't really all that thrilled by the idea (I never am!) but after our visit to the orchard my tune changed! Jamison and Alexis are having their standard (noodles and sauce for Lex, noodles, ground beef and sauce for Jamison) and I'm going to use some of the things I picked up this morning, along with some herbs from my front porch, to make a fresh pasta topper.

What are you having?

I'm going to bake chicken parmesan. I cheat with jarred marinara, but compensate with fresh mozzarella. I'm going to serve it over whole wheat linguine.

I have to admit I've never actually made chicken parm. I've thought about it, but never actually made the dish. Sounds delicious!
