1. I'm going to add tuna to some left over pasta salad. Cottage cheese, olives, some bread on the side.

(Pasta salad done simple, with cukes, squash, red onions, olive oil & red wine vinegar, spices.)

Hope you're doing well Lucinda.

2. Cobb salad. Got my supplies yesterday!

Nice rotisserie chicken and lots of produce. Will be doing a lot of cooking for the next week or two.

Hope you are feeling better, Lucinda.

4. shrimp-corn-avocado salad

I knocked myself out and we haven't dined yet--my spouse is not yet home from the airport, having flown in from Denver. Has been in airports since 6 a.m. but with all the thunderstorms, lots of delays and lost luggage. But he's at the wine store now!

I wanted to use those heirloom tomatoes I picked from my garden for my salad. When it came time to chop them for the salad, I nearly burst into tears. They were so ugly! Now it is not as if I haven't grown heirlooms before: I have grown them for years.

Nevertheless, I chopped them up, along with a Campari tomato from the store. Then I tasted mine and the Campari. WOW~! The taste on mine was unbelievable!! I was so happy.

Well, time to dine! He just drove up!

5. ugly produce is reported to be more nutritious

In fact, there's a tomato grown in Florida that isn't allowed to be sold out of state simply because it is ugly! Delicious, but ugly.

14. We have a tiny, tiny srip of plantable space

and have great luck with tomatoes and peppers. Great yields and the flavor is sooooo much better than store bought!

16. Made tostadas with refried beans and hamburger

Homemade tortillas, fried in olive oil and drained. I make up refried beans in large batches, frying with olive oil and freezing them in portions suitable for a dinner for two--in this case, two dinners for two. Chopped onion and salsa in the burger, shredded romaine lettuce, sliced cherry tomatoes, salsa, non-fat yogurt, and shredded cheddar cheese.

17. Thai corn and crab soup.

With toasted French bread. Carpal tunnel acting up and this is just so easy to put together. I didn't decide to cook until 5:45 and had dinner ready by 6:10PM. Best pantry soup ever! (providing you have fresh ginger, garlic, and cilantro in the veggie drawer of your refrigerator).
