Instead I noticed that my first batch of garden lettuce was ready to be used. Yay! My first meal from the garden this year. I tore up the lettuce in a salad bowl, cut the sweet corn off the leftover cob in the fridge from earlier in the week and put that on top of the lettuce. Next went some hard boiled eggs for protein, sliced tomatoes, and my freezer held some boneless pork that I thinly sliced and pan fried in olive oil.
A few slices of my homemade Peasant Bread and Voila! A low-heat dinner.
While the hot days of summer are here, our dinner standby is usually some sort of salad. This was one that turned out good enough to photograph.
