Too hot to cook. Went to Lobster Landing in Clinton for their famous hot lobster rolls, accompanied by a bevy of pushy sparrows. And of course had to try their gelato while watching the boats return. Non-dairy has no calories, right?

'Salt and Pepper' is usually thought of as a small pickling cucumber, but DW has decreed that we aren't going to have any jars of vinegar smelling up the house! Is it also good for eating raw? I'm also trying 'Lemon Slicer' and 'Spacemaster' this year, but they are not quite ripe yet.

Great cake Jen!
I had dinner at Davids and he made pasta with Italian sausage in olive oil n garlic with tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, onions, fresh basil, spinach, shredded cheese and multiple seasonings. It was very good, he's a better cook than I.

Spent the afternoon chopping and sautéing veggies and Italian sausage to make a onedish meal. Included cannelloni beans and corn and some diced tomatoes. Will be served over rice.

Also, while I was at it made chicken and vegetable soup. Should be able to freeze most of these. I find I like the process.

My DIL yesterday on Facebook asked if anyone else realized that no matter how long it takes to fix a meal it is eaten just as fast as one that is a quickie. Raising four boys I just had to laugh at that one and said I realized that a l o n g time ago.

Yes, I have an electric ice cream maker...I've made peach, lemon, & banana...I make a custard first...eggs, sugar, milk, chill it, then add flavorings & fruit to the mixer...I found you need a lot more flavoring than you think, otherwise it tastes like vanilla. A local dairy tried using Old Barn Farm's blueberries this summer, but they found they couldn't get a strong enough blueberry flavor without adding extracts, which they didn't want to do...the dairy gave the trial ice cream to my grandkids, they liked it...

I've practiced with 2 recipes so far, the cooked custard one was much better than just cream and sugar.
I imagine the sweetened condensed milk would substitute for the eggs, but I don't want to try it if it's not good. I'm looking at the ice cream attachment for my kitcheaid mixer. How do you make lemon?

I just juiced 1/2 dozen lemons & added juice , some pulp, and rind to the machine when I had the custard in there...I liked the lemon the best...Today I'm making eggplant parm from the large eggplant I bought at the fair...the organic farm that sold it is owned by one of my former students...

After the spring frosts I had planted some Watermelon radishes. Never having grown them before, I was disappointed when they didn't appear to develop as fast as the familiar cherry types, and forgot about them. Today I brushed aside some leaves from an adjoining crop and there they were, as big as beets! They are very colorful and crunchy when cut open. DW put them in a stir-fry with carrots, green beans, amd pok choi from the garden, and enthused about their taste when cooked as well. We also had wild salmon, but they quieted down nicely when sauteed.

Scorched my fingers canning pasta sauce. Trying out the Tattler lids that last forever. I miss the ping when the metal two piece lids lock in.
