I had to laugh when I went to write this post and saw last week's title of "Welcomed warmth". How quickly it changed! Oppressive heat is the term the meteorologist were using in the forecast and I can not think of a better description. While we always expect a heat wave in September we have not experienced those kinds of temperatures here before.
This week's pick list:
- Summer squash
- Hot pepper
- Spring onions
- Melon and watermelon
- Parsley, basil, cilantro, and dill
- Pick your own crops!
- Revolution Bread is available
Watermelon Gazpacho, from nytimes.com
- ½ pound tomato
- 1 ½ pounds seeded and cubed watermelon for the rest
- handfulof mint leaves
- 1 peeled and diced cucumber
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Crumbled feta
Combine 1/2 pounds chopped tomatoes and 1 1/2 pounds seeded and cubed watermelon with 1 peeled and diced cucumber, 1/4 cup olive oil, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a food processor or blender; process until chunky-smooth.
Garnish: Crumbled feta and chopped mint.
