A recent trip to a farmers' market in the Garden State (New Jersey) yielded a true bounty for a few meals.
For some reason, in yesterday's heat (98 degrees) and humidity, I felt the need to be by my stove!
More 'blistering heat' yielded this plate of roasted red and yellow peppers, which I love with fresh mozzarella or I like to place on sandwiches, or even just eat the way they are. Simple dressing of evoo, garlic, s&p, oregano, and a drizzle of balsamic just before eating!
And I made a couple of stuffed ones with breadcrumbs, grated cheese, pitted olives, parsley, pepper, add evoo and either veg or chicken broth til mixture is consistency of wet sand, fill peppers, place in pan and drizzle with oil and bake 350 for 15-20 minutes, checking often. I did not add salt as it is salty enough with the cheese and olives.
Then I made a quick side dish of potatoes and string beans the way my mom made it, dressed once again with evoo, s&p, red wine vinegar, red onion, and oregano (once I learned what a potent antioxidant this herb is, I use it wherever I can).
Oh, I did add some chunks of feta cheese. Hmmm, maybe this is a Greek-style potato salad? :-)
For dessert, a peach and an apricot, rinsed under cool water and eaten as Nature intended.
