Our garden is bursting right now with goodness. It’s days like this that my February self longs for… yet even in the midst of this bounty – I sometimes get sick of the way I prepare beets, cucumbers, squash, kale, chard… etc. How to mix it up and do something different?

There’s nothing really too amazing about this meal – except that for me – it was just that… different. It began with a tired momma  scratching her head, but it ended with such a tasty combination that I thought I would share. Sometimes it’s great to get some fresh inspiration.

Hope this summer menu does that for you!
