I love this time of year when summer hasn't quite changed into fall and gardens are bursting with vegetables. No matter if you have a garden or are buying from a farmer's market, the plentiful produce combined with perfect weather for being outside makes cooking vegetables on the grill such a delight. And of course, grilled vegetables are wonderfully flavorful. If you don't have an outside grill, you can also make grilled veggies on an electric grill or stove-top grill pan. If' I've convinced you to try veggies on the grill, here are a few tips, plus some recipes to get you started.
Hi, I'm Rachel. I run DailyPepTalkFromABestFriendEveryday I post a pep talk, a podcast, and a whole bunch of pics and art. As an art lover, I'm interested in promoting artists with a picture on my site and a link to your blog or info. If you check my site and think your work would be good match, please feel free to contact me. I like all sorts of arts and crafts, jewelry, photos, antiques, cute animals, food and recipies with pics, anything really.
Summer cooking is inspired by fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs, which is why I thought it would be fun to write a series of posts about the summer-time sauces that use these seasonal ingredients. So far I've discussed Chimichurri Sauce, Greek Tzatziki Sauce, and Pesto. It's time to talk about salsa, which I'm guessing is the most well-known summer sauce of all.
like me with your lack of melon-picking luck? I smell them to make
sure they smell as much like a sweet version of themselves as
possible. Yup, and I poke the blossom end to make sure it has a nice
give. I heft them to evaluate whether they're heavy for their weight.
I've even laid down in the middle of the garden to place my ear on a
watermelon so I could squeeze it to listen for an alleged tell-tale
cracking that means it's ripe.
So I have publicly vowed here on BlogHer on more than one occasion that I would be eating organic for health, going green (first by recycling), and amping up my non-existent fitness regimen. I'll let you all in on a secret - I'm batting 1 out of 3. That's not so bad right?
Hey, if you live in Jacksonville, Florida, you may have already seen PETA's latest billboard, which depicts an overweight woman spilling out of her bikini and underneath "Save the Whales" declares, "Lose the blubber: Go vegetarian."
Is it possible to be a part time vegetarian? As someone who is always trying to eat healthier, this sounds like it could be an interesting idea. Personally, I could never be the person who cuts meat out of her life altogether, but limiting my meat intake and eating more vegetables is very doable.
In addition to this being a more healthy way of eating, there are also economic implications. It's just getting more and more expensive to buy meat these days. In fact, due to the economy I think I've actually become an accidental part-time vegetarian.
