Just In Time . . .


some easy peasy foods to fix
for a Labor Day picnic
 
 
take a round watermelon
cut it in half
take one of the half sides, make slices across the melon
then make slices going the other direction
 

and presto, you'll have small slices, easy to handle, less mess too
handy slices for those little hands
 

 
vegetable dinner
 any vegetables you have on hand will work
this meal had cauliflower, summer squash, red, yellow, orange pepper, onions,
seasoning, olive oil,
45 degrees, 10-15 minutes
keep an eye on them, less time may be needed
toss mid way
serve
enjoy
 

 
flat bread pizza's
sauté some onions until carmelized
also sauté zucchini,
red pepper and some yellow squash
 
  
brush some olive oil on the flat bread,
I used Naan bread 
add shredded cheese like
mozzarella, pepper jack, parmesan
add the veggies
add more cheese
bake at 400 degrees for approx. 8 minutes
 

my friend Barbie gets the credit
for the flat bread idea
she perfected
we tried
we like

That is awesome.

I will be over. That is how hubby and I do our veggies. We just had the w.M last week now we are on the corn kick. My friend has a garden in N.B. and her watermelons are 6 pounds.

She also make chutney. Do you know what that is? Using green tomatoes and the other veggies you have but she cans them up. For I think sauce for spaghetti.


We are having a quiet one today.

My adults are camping with the kids and some to friends. School starts next Tuesday. So they are making time with them.

It is humid but no sun and rain inbetween.

I'll take the veggies and the flatbread pizza but I'm going to have to pass on the Watermelon (it makes me sick).
