It's the beginning of November here but you wouldn't have guessed it by looking at my friends' garden plot. I stopped by their house tonight to eat dinner and gossip (a common Friday night occurrence here) and they sent me home with a bounty of veggies:
From the top, going clockwise are: beet greens, eggplants, jalapeno peppers, and tomatoes.
The tomatoes are garden fresh and are to die for. Those will probably be gone by Monday and I will be left with the store-bought barely-ripe monstrosities they call tomatoes. Oh well....better enjoy them while I can! ;-)
The greens will be braised with onions and garlic on my next steak night - I fry the steak first, and then turn down the heat, add in a little coconut oil before tossing in the onions, garlic and greens. Cover and let steam until done.
Not sure what I'm going to do with the jalapenos and eggplants but I'm sure I'll figure something out. Nothing goes to waste in this house, especially free food!
