The garden is coming along. My jalapeno plant is still coming along, the cucumbers are tiny little spiky oblongs that look like they will never mature to full cucumbers but I have faith. I finally got my fist summer squash, I'm not sure how both plants that I have continue to flower like they are and not produce fruit. Something is eating my basil, like crazy - I went out and bought three more plants hoping that one of it will make it. My tomatoes, although green are very prolific, I'm assuming in a few more weeks we'll be up to our elbows in tomatoes. Thyme - does anyone have any recipes that use a lot of fresh thyme? I've got thyme coming out the ying yang and need someway to use it. Any ideas welcome, seriously.
Also, I'll be heading to Napa and Sonoma soon. If you could let me know your favorite wineries to visit out there I would greatly appreciate it. I've been there before and I'm familiar with some of the wineries, but there are just so many of them that I'd love to have your information with me when I plan my winery tours. Thanks.
Oven Roasted Broccoli with Garlic
2 Heads broccoli broken into florets
1 clove garlic minced
2 tsp canola oil
sea salt and pepper to taste
Combine oil, garlic salt in pepper. In a large bowl pour oil mixture over the broccoli and toss to coat.
Place in 400 degree oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. If you feel like it, squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the broccoli before serving.
I ate this warm right out of the oven, and cold the next day, it was great both ways.
