The garden meal department has still been a little slow. I really want to start cooking meals that are almost completely from the garden but I just don't have enough things ready for harvest yet. I really need the beans, tomatoes, peppers and potatoes to get growing! Here are a few meals that have had a garden portion to them over the last week or two:
This meal was excellent! Beef tenderloin wrapped in good smoked bacon, lightly blanched sugar snap peas and potatoes cooked on the grill with olive oil & rosemary. The garden portion is the sugar snap peas & rosemary. I have been resisting the urge to steal potatoes from the ground so far. The beef tenderloin was purchased on sale as a whole piece. Once broke down into a roast, 6 steaks and an end piece for stroganoff it was basically the same price as hamburg. Good value there.
Here is a grilled pork chop with a mix of baby vegetables, beets, carrots, sugar snaps & broad beans. A very nice light meal.
Here is a strawberry rhubarb pie with a ginger strussel topping. This was made with rhubarb from the garden. If you are interested in the recipe it can be found on my Mom's baking blog.
