That's the first North Arm I've seen in the wild. You like it?I have been maxed out on busy season stuff. But the garden has fresh herbs and plenty of asparagus.
It's been insanely hot for this part of MN. It gets cool enough to sleep about 2 hours before dawn, if then. Screw heating things up indoors more than the bare minimum.
Walmart, the store of my love/hate relationship this past 1.5 years has some cheap(ish) & sort of edible frozen cheese & onion pierogies. And I have stuff to spark them into being a bit more than just edible.
First, the frozen pierogies are fried in butter, olive oil & grape seed oil for about 8 minutes. Then, turned and the rest of the ingredients layered over them for another 8 minutes-
Home made canadian bacon, home grown purple asparagus, shallots, broccoli, fresh herbs (thyme, greek & Italian oregano, Italian parsley), preserved lemons, white wine, fresh ground black pepper & sea salt.
Then it is tossed with either sour cream OR low fat greek yogurt, some additional fresh ground black pepper and DEVOURED. Beats the hell out of fast food, takes less time than ordering out. You'll probbly want a light salad of some type along side to ballance it, unless you're so tire you just don't care about anything but "summer comfort food, RIGHT NOW!".
I've played with different veggies, adding portobello mushroom slices, different wines/vinegars/herbs/Allepo pepper or other red peppers, adding shredded cheeses.
IT ALL WORKS.
Try it, it's forgiving and filling.

beautiful, just can’t get myself to eat sardines.My new fishmonger is selling Portuguese canned seafood from Jose Gourmet and I picked up a can of sardines to try them out. Made bruschetta with tomato, goats cheese, pickled red onion and (obviously) sardines. Really something else compared to the kippers I buy at the supermarket..!

Great link, thanks for sharing.Portuguese and Spanish conservas are special
I remember bars in San Sebastien selling pricey cans of seafood instead of tapas.
This gives ideas of what else to try....

We had today smoked salmon on a bagel half with capers, purple onion, cream cheese. The other half bagel was cream cheese with fresh garden tomato slices, with a little salt. So we were close to having the same idea.
Can you give me a recipe? Is the green topping fennel and flat parsley?
The green topping is dill, cress and parsley.Can you give me a recipe? Is the green topping fennel and flat parsley?
I have so much fresh garden squash right now I need some fresh ideas as I am getting tired of eating squash. I know in a couple of months I will miss it.
Try this. Good introduction. My version of the recipe is a few posts down. Sardines love lemons!
