30. Rat's the only way to fly this time of year

I CAN be creative with food, it's in my job description, but honestly when the squashes and tomatoes are all fresh and in season, my hands-down favorite thing to make with them is a big pot of OG ratatouille and serve it up with a crusty baguette and some VT Creamery butter. Goes well with a poached or over-easy (gotta have a runny yolk) egg, too.

My quick and dirty recipe:

Cubed zuchs/squash/eggplant
Diced red onion
Garlic
Tomatoes
Thyme
EVO
Salt/pepper

Saute each individual type of squash hot and fast until they're all golden brown and sweat the onion and garlic while you're roasting the tomatoes in a hot over. Rough chop the tomatoes, saving all the juice. Put it all in a big pot with lots and lots of fresh thyme and a little more olive oil. Simmer until everything gets tender and the flavors come together. Season well and serve. Oh my.
