Angel Hair with summer vegetables


Farm fresh tomatoes and basil, mixed with a little olive oil and crushed garlic, seasoned with salt and pepper, and then tossed with warm angel hair pasta and a touch of lemon juice, makes a delicious yet fast meal. I also tossed some squash and onions I found at a farm stand, along with the beautiful early tomatoes, into the pasta.

I’ve been eating tomato sandwiches on homemade bread for breakfast and lunch. I have one tomato left for tomorrow. Time to find more.




Meal log 4/28

Dinner – ham, potato, carrot, green onions, and cabbage fried in a little butter. 


Lunch – roasted potato and vegetable salad with sauce gribiche 

Sauce gribiche is just vinegar, Dijon mustard, herbs, and  hard-boiled egg yolk whisked with olive oil.

For breakfast I had creamy spinach and sweet potato, which I posted earlier.

Another way to enjoy baked sweet potato for breakfast is to top with one tablespoon of natural peanut butter, 1/2 ounce of roasted nuts, or a serving of good ricotta cheese. I always add cinnamon and usually add a sweetener (maple syrup, honey, or brown sugar).

Breakfast yesterday – sweet potato with peanut butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
