Because we keep getting bunches and bunches of fresh basil from our farmshare, in addition to the basil we’ve been growing ourselves, R. has been making a lot of pesto in our blender.  When we had a Labor Day picnic on tap, then, she went right into making a pasta salad.  It was fantastic!  No picture today, sadly.  You can find the original recipe here.




Alas, this fantastic quiche was gobbled up before we could train a camera on it.  As such, the photo here is from La Tartine Gourmande, where we got the recipe in the first place. 

We had a potluck to attend and thought quiche would be the perfect thing to bring and share.  We needed to continue using both kale and zucchina from our CSA box, so this is the recipe we ended up using with our own slight modifications.  The quiche was a HUGE hit, and even Gastronomike, who doesn’t typically like quiches much, gave it the thumbs up.



Pressed Sandwiches

Last night I sat down with the July issue of Martha Stewart magazine to do something I have never done before: make a recipe from it. We had plans to picnic with friends today and I wanted to make something nice.
