I hadn’t quite gotten around to using the rainbow chard from last week’s CSA and this week, there was more in our bag. I wanted to make sure we used it up, so I quickly sautéed it with some diced onion and a boatload of garlic for our dinner.
I had pulled out a batch of homemade pierogi from the freezer as our side dish and marinated two bone in pork chops for dinner. While I was cooking the greens and pierogi inside, the hubby was grilling the pork for me. We sat down to a lovely dinner, outside on the deck. The rains had come through and really lowered the humidity, thank goodness, and there was a gentle breeze blowing. It was a wonderful summer night. The little girls next door came over and spotted the chocolate zucchini cake. They were debating the merits of eating a piece at my house or having ice cream at their house. I did them one better by cutting the cake and giving them half. I told them they should try to get their Mom to agree to a small slice of cake and a small scoop of ice cream. I will have to wait until this afternoon to see if they were successful in their bid for two desserts!
