Episode 67 – Garden Follow-Up with Our (Green Thumbed) Husbands – What Has Gone Well and What We’ve Been Making

The last time we chatted about gardens, it was late Spring and the seeds had just been planted.  Today, hear from our husbands about this summer’s garden harvest and what they have learned for next year.  And of course, hear what we are making in the kitchen with all of our bounty!

Resources and Show Notes

Gina’s “Harvest” Favorite Recipes

Pickles – Nope, not homemade, but sort of. I buy delicious kosher pickles, eat them, then use the remaining pickle juice for my own pickles!  I cut our cucumbers into spears and drop them in the container. Leave in the fridge for at least 24-hours.  Yum!

Pesto  – Don’t have pine nuts? Use any nut (I use almonds often)

Tomato, Cucumber, Pepper and Feta Salad – In a bowl add any ratio of cucumber, halved cherry tomatoes, chopped pepper and feta cheese.  Mix with your favorite balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Zucchini Pizza – Recipe found in Nicole’s cookbook

Pesto Pizza – See pesto recipe above. Use it on your favorite pizza crust instead of red sauce. Add toppings as you wish.  We have been doing pesto with zucchini, sometimes sausage and mushroom.

Risotto with Spring Vegetables – Hint, you can use any vegetables you want!
