Have I mentioned yet that Dan has a garden plot at his work? Well, he does! He arrived at my house on Friday night with the first harvest of the summer: five skinny jalapeno peppers, a small handfull of basil, (both not pictured,) and the following:
A purple bell pepper, and a small bunch of prairie onions! The bell pepper, onions, and basil were put to good use in dinner tonight:
I cooked up some whole-wheat pasta and tossed it with my homemade sauce, which I loaded up with Dan's basil, and I also made a simple veggie saute, including the bell pepper and onions, as well as some other veggies (red onion, garlic, baby zucchini, and beet tops) that I had hanging around that needed to be used up. I adorned the veggies with a drizzle of olive oil, a few pinches of salt and pepper, and a splash of balsamic vinegar.
This was a delightfully simple, healthy dinner that we both devoured! Hooray for veggies!
(P.S. The prairie onions were SO sweet! Yum!)
