Dinner time

Oh my, we've been eating the best food recently. You should come by for dinner. The garden is producing so many of our favorite veggies, and we get to base our meals around them. 

Migrant-Farm Hand Becky made stuffed peppers. The peppers were so sweet, and the rice filling was so good!

This was the first batch of sauce. Farmer John scooped some out and used it for eggplant Parmesan. 

This is one of my favorite meals ever!

Migrant Farm-Hand Becky found a new recipe. It was right next to the tomato sauce recipe that we already had out, and it comes from "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver. The recipe is "Frijole Mole", which is just great fun to say. It looks a little strange, but is basically a green bean pesto. I like it because all the ingredients come from the farm: green beans, basil, eggs, and onions. We eat it on crackers as a side or after-school snack. 

The cherry tomatoes are producing more than we can manage. Bruschetta has been a meal at least twice during the week - and then again on the weekend!

After a busy Saturday of putting in more hay, we feasted on pizza. No sauce, just fresh tomatoes, basil, and roasted eggplant. 

Thanks for reading about our food. It's the best part of living on the farm!  (Oh, and if this sounds good to you, be sure to stop by the Farmer's Market!)


  1. The freshness of your recipes are a welcome read! Now, if only you could grow olives! I'd be in heaven and become a farm hand at harvest time!

  2. yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... possible to freeze some of this "pesto" til november?

  3. ps- Farmer John has planted more beans, when those are ready I'll make a batch and save it for you! Can't wait!

  4. What deeeeeelish photos! if Gourmet magazine still was in print, you would have qualifying photos and recipes! My mouth is watering. Well done Farmers John and Mollie!

  5. I've been tending a friend's garden for the last month while she's abroad, and as a result have been up to my ears in tomatoes and zucchini (the two things the garden is excellent at producing). I had bruschetta for dinner this week too :) And there have been ample zucchini breads and fritters, along with zucchini and tomato pasta, pizza, omelets, grilled veggies...

  6. Migrant Farm Hand Becky! I love it! And love that you tried a Kingsolver recipe. Looks far better than what I've been eating...

  7. Oh, DBK, I'm sure we are eating better than you right now. But, your views are WAY better! We'll feast in February!!
