Real food

The rain yesterday gave us a rare night off from ball games. As much as I love my concession stand popcorn with peanut butter m&m’s dumped in, it was really nice to get in the kitchen and make some real food again.


First tomatoes of the season from “the tomato lady” at the farmers market…


make the first BLT’s of the season. Yum! I hoard bacon just for this moment.


I baked 4 loaves of “no-knead” bread, and cooked up a vat of vegetable beef soup.


Fresh strawberries from my dad’s patch. We ate them over vanilla ice cream.


And a new vintage-look kitchen tablecloth. (That needs ironing. Ahem.) Love!

    Wonderful post. Aren’t tomatoes and strawberries the essence of June? Love your tablecloth! (Back to the ball game.)
