Garden Bounty!

We are so proud of our garden! It really is the little garden that could. It started as a bunch of dirt that we were certain would never let things grow. But with a little TLC, we were able to produce so many yummy veggies, greens and herbs. Kevin harvested the cucumbers, zucchini (blossoms too!) spinach, tomatoes and beets pictured above and we turned it into dinner. Gardening is such a rewarding hobby!

For an appetizer, we stuffed the squash blossoms with goat cheese, rolled them in an egg wash and bread crumbs, and browned in a pan. Talk about melt-in-your-mouth goodness!

Next, we roasted the beets and added them to the spinach, cucumber and tomatoes to make an unbelievably flavorful salad.

Finally, we steamed our zucchini, and seasoned with a little lemon pepper and Parmesan cheese. We served this along side some salmon burgers from Whole Foods, and voila! Dinner is served.

And yes, some homebrew to round out the meal :)
