Nearly as fresh as you can get

It's been ages since I posted here. I've been busy this summer, though still enjoying my food!

Tonight, I needed to make a quickie dinner. Adam threw some water on for pasta, and I raided the CSA share and our garden. I chopped up:

2 fairytale eggplants (from the garden)
1 onion (from the CSA)
2 cloves of garlic (CSA)
1 tomato (farmer's market)
a bunch of basil and parsley (garden)

and sauteed it in olive oil, salt, and pepper. When the pasta was done, I threw it all together and dinner was done!

I also made some iced tea using loose black tea and mint from the garden, and I made a salad for the side using an itty bitty cabbage, some fennel fronds, a bit of fennel stem, and small yellow tomatoes, all from the CSA. I added salt, pepper & and a commercial dressing (an organic red wine vinaigrette) because I was out of time and we were hungry!

All in all, a nice, quick dinner made almost entirely from fresh & local ingredients! Yay!
