The foods in season and the herbs that grow plentifully in our garden guide our summer menu.
We don't grow bananas but this is a common breakfast: bananas, non-fat vanilla yogurt, soya milk
Lunch: Greens, tomato, mozzarella and fresh basil
Washing and prepping mint
Using a bunch of fresh mint, left over corn on the cob, tomatoes and whole wheat couscous from Trader Joe's I made this quick and easy veggie meal.
When it is super hot out I prefer to not eat meat so we are eating lots of vegetarian meals and fish.
Dr. J and I were vegetarians before we had monkeys and now we tend to eat meat seasonally.
The next night for dinner I made salmon patties and used the left over couscous, adding new herbs.
Salmon patty with a chunk of Blue Stilton and couscous salad with fresh cilantro, tomatoes and red onions.
Do you find you also eat less meat when it is hot out?
If you are a vegetarian what are some of your favorite summer dishes?
