I've been a very well fed Granny this week. Amy had us over for a lovely Father's Day brunch, and John treated us to dinner at a local restaurant, where I enjoyed a half rack of barbecued pork ribs with all the trimmings.
I didn't harvest much from the garden yesterday, as the refrigerator was still filled with Monday's pickings. I did get a first for 2010, though. A handful (2 oz) of bush green beans!
Only beans and raspberries were picked Tuesday. My beans weren't quite as green as they look here. I forgot to photograph the harvest until after they were cooked!
Dinner was grilled wild salmon, baked potato (not from my garden), the broccoli I picked on Monday, and mixed lettuce salad with cranberries and walnuts, topped with an oil/vinegar/sugar dressing. Mr. Granny got the fresh green beans, as he doesn't care much for broccoli. I did what I do every year, I overcooked my first broccoli of the season. I think the tender florets cook so much faster than the tough ones from the produce department of the grocery store. Overcooked or not, they were still delicious. I baked some oatmeal cookies, so we munched on those and were too full to eat the raspberries for dessert. They'll be really good for breakfast this morning, with some whole grain buttered toast.
