To walk out into my garden and pick most of what we will have for dinner gives me so much joy. The garden is on the verge of bursting with eggplant, zucchini, okra, tomatoes and onions. Sounds like ratatouille to me! (The peppers aren’t quite ready, so those needed to be purchased).
It’s a bit too hot for cooking indoors, so this meal needed to be grilled. The veggies were washed and sliced, brushed with olive oil, and sprinkled with salt and pepper. They were grilled until soft, with just a touch of crispness left, and then chopped and tossed with crushed garlic, olive oil, wine vinegar and fresh-from-the-garden basil, parsley and oregano.

We sprinkled some parmesan on top and sat down to enjoy. We were eating food that had been in the garden less than a half hour earlier. It can’t get any fresher than that!
