Max and I went out to Our Garden to pick some basil for dinner. Because we can do that sort of thing. Because we're practically farmers.
And we made some wonderful discoveries....
AND BABY TOMATOES!!
And BABY STRAWBERRIES!
That is one cute farmer.
And the reason for the basil? Only my very favorite summertime dinner (or lunch) (or snack) ever:
grilled chicken, sliced
grilled asparagus (sprinkle with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper before grilling)
cherry tomatoes (halved)
kalamata olives (halved)
balsamic vinegar (I used a balsamic vinaigrette)
Toss it all together.
Before we know it, the tomatoes in that recipe will be homegrown, too.
