About This Time...

I Get Bombarded

Anyone else have this late summer issue? ;~D

 With Peppers And Tomatoes

It's the end of summer and the harvests are flowing in.  As long as the rain's been good, most gardeners end up with an abundance of tomatoes and peppers.  This also means I get a lot of free eats from my gardening buddies.  Fortunately, there are many things you can do with your cornucopia of veggies.  Here are some of my favorites.

Grilled chicken salad with salsa, black beans and rice.  
In fact, you could grill the chicken in advance, even freezing it a month at a time, to make healthy and tasty fast food at home.

Chicken fajitas with garlic, onion, peppers and tomatoes.
  • Grill chicken in a pan with olive oil
  • Add onion and garlic after 
  • Follow with green peppers and jalapenos
  • Add tomatoes at the end 
Be sure to season with plenty of salt, pepper, chili powder and cumin.  Wrap in warm tortillas with rice, guacamole and salsa.

Speaking of guacamole...
  • Chop a small tomato, jalapeno chili (heat is in the seeds and pulp), onion and cilantro.  
  • Combine with juice of one lime, salt and pepper.
  • Mash in two large, ripe avocados 
  • Let it sit for 20 minutes then enjoy   
Eat with tortilla chips, use it as a garnish for fajitas, tacos or salads.  Or, you could simply spread it on a sandwich...

The ultimate BLT!
  • Bring home some bacon/ Fry it up in a pan.  
  • Slice up some tomatoes
  • Toast some bread
  • Slather on guacamole 
  • Place bacon on that slice
  • Put tomatoes on top of the bacon ~ salt and pepper
  • Add a slice of nice romaine lettuce
