This is what was picked from the garden today. All we needed for tonight's dinner was some chicken.
Chicken: Ben cooked it in a fry pan with a tad of oil until brown. Then topped it with fresh pesto he made from the basil we grow.
Beets: I boiled them until they were tender. Since there is always a lot of oil in pesto when cooked, we decided to use what came off the pesto and chicken and I used it to make an Italian vinaigrette to marinate them in.
Eggplant: I sliced, sauteed in olive oil and seasoned with salt & pepper. (My son and I love it best prepared this way)
Tomatoes: They are so yummy from the garden, we just sliced and ate them with a dash of salt & pepper.
Watermelon: Weren't sure if they were ripe yet or not. By looking at the anemic piece on the plate, you can tell they need a few more days out in the sun on the vine.
