After working in the gardens all day I often am very tired. I want something delicious and quick to fix for supper.
Grilled Zucchini Sandwiches are one of my favorite summer time suppers. I simpy slice a zucchini in half and grill. I also grill an onion and since I keep our bread in the freezer I grill it too.
I spread some hummus on the bread and top with Red Oak Leaf Lettuce from under the front peonies. Fast and so tasty.
For dessert I fix another fast treat; sorbets in cookie bowls. This one is Mango Sorbet with chocolate sauce, coconut and sliced almonds. I also do other sorbet flavors and add fresh fruit. Fancy enough for company, quick enough for after a day in the garden. My husband enjoys these fast meals so much. He almost always says, "You can't get this in a resteraunt!" I think it would be excellent if you could.
When I was younger one of my dearest friends was an older woman.
I would often talk with her about the frustrations of house and gardens. She would tell me to work for "progress not perfection". Wise words from a wise woman. I remember her and the gifts of living she shared with me. Today we made much progress in the gardens. I am tired, dirty and sore. It is a nice feeling.
