Today I left the Band and the Things at home so I could go to the farmers market. I love fresh produce during these summer days. Summer squash, cukes, the strawberries, boysenberries, peaches, nectarines, and all the green beans you can eat. They are all in a plentitude this time of year. I tried this morning making "basil Butter"
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh Basil
and Two sticks of butter at room temp.
(This Month’s issue of EVERYDay FOOD!)
Mix all ingredients like it was a Merry stew of flavor. Then take your handy waxpaper or in my case press and seal wrap. Roll into a tube of about 8 inches long and 1inch thick. Then you can cut little pats of butter onto everything.
You can put it on steaks, shrimp, chicken, and of course hot steamy bread. I am going to try it on the stuff I am cooking like veggies.
I got a good recipe for brocolli slaw. And shrimp kabobs. There are so many options for some good summer treats. I promised myself I would eat better. So this week we are combining healthy with just straight up YUMMY.
I have some old and new desert recipes I must delve into. I have to go grocery shopping!! Man what a week this will be!!
