Quiet Times

We all go through quiet times in our lives, and late summer is such a time for me. Garden produce is abundant right now, and most of our family meals consist of dishes that don't require a recipe. Key ingredients right now are Walla Walla Sweet onions, zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, corn on the cob, and Yukon Gold potatoes. These ingredients make great stir-fries, sandwiches, and one-dish meals. Produce is being supplemented with beans and whole grains --- both make a good base for meal time. Melons, peaches, and other fruits are enjoyed and satisfy the sweet tooth in us all. The fiber count is up with these types of meals, making the Full-Plate Diet easy. How I wish garden produce would last year-around! Recipes will follow soon --- when the quiet time has passed and inspiration hits again.
