A great way to start a Sunday morning

August 21, 2011

My fiancé and I have a friend named Charlie who’s been cultivating a garden this summer in Woburn, Massachusetts. We saw it for the first time this morning, and were quite impressed. Check out my pics:

The garden is 54 by 54 feet.


Jalapeno peppers


Asian eggplant




Brussels sprouts

There were lots of bees pollinating flowers.


My pics don’t even begin to show all the produce that was there, including spinach, tomatoes, onions, Brussels sprouts, squash, zucchini, lettuce, eggplant, rosemary, basil, snow peas, green beans, cabbage, radishes, parsnips, cucumbers, jalapeno peppers,  corn and watermelon. We ended up with a bunch of veggies to cook this week!

There's a swan in the distance!

Squash with cream, Parmesan cheese and rosemary

November 17, 2010

I know this looks kind of gross, but it was delish! I had a butternut squash to cook, and no idea how to cook it. I found a recipe online, and modified it based on what I had. Instead of adding sage I added rosemary. And I actually added the cheese to the squash, cream, salt, pepper and rosemary in the beginning, instead of waiting until the mixture had baked for 30 minutes. I had the dish in the oven for about an hour. I think I probably could have taken it out 10 minutes earlier, as the squash ended up being slightly too soft (but good!).
