My favorite meal is a summertime meal, when local veggies are fresh. It’s simple – green beans, boiled just about 15 minutes, so they’re still al dente, but not crunchy, with a bit of olive oil and powdered garlic. Sliced ripe tomatoes, also with olive oil drizzled over them, sprinkled with fresh basil. Corn – either on the cob or off, but fresh, with a bit of butter and salt. A small loaf of whole wheat bread, warm and sliced thick. For dessert, fresh fruit – maybe strawberries and blueberries.
It’s a pretty meal – colorful, with lots of different shapes and textures. Easy to fix. And delicious.
