YAY 4th of July! The weather was awesome, there were lots of fireworks and I had an awesome rooftop dinner party that I did not get nearly enough pictures of.
This baby is a recipe I have made every summer since I was a wee one with mi madre. Fruit Pizza. Always different, cause you can do whatever you like with it, and now with my citrus allergy I just toss all the fruit in fresh squeezed lemon juice instead of making the citrus glaze for the top. I am starting to really miss the taste of oranges. A lot.
Then I made an awesome 7 lb pork butt red white and blue with a Blue Rosemary Sauce I made with a touch of molasses instead of all that sugar and added habanero peppers. I grilled it with about 1/2 cup of sauce and then after I shredded it I added about 1 1/2 more cups. It was dynamite!
Then I also made red white and blue Deviled Potatoes
but I made my own mayo and it kind of yellowed everything out too much. But you get the idea, enjoyed those leftovers with a nice salad and the CSA cheeses you will see below
My roomie made cashew dip, a tomato salad and hibiscus tea which we mixed with vodka, and my awesome friend Courtney brought beautiful Jack Daniels ribs and there was a jello flag and a bunch of other awesomeness I am kicking myself for not documenting. This is the party coming together. I highly recommend the inflati salad bar. Fill it with ice and keep all your salads from getting weird in the sun. : )
Then yesterday I went to the park to get my CSA. I tried to go at 9am to beat the heat, but no dice, I sizzled the entire way there. Seems like the broccoli we got had been sizzling as well. Color don’t matter in broccoli though, so no worries.
3 pints organic blueberries
1/2 Dozen Pastured Eggs
Mixed Flowers – evidently these are edible.
1 pkg Pawlet AND 1 pkg Rupert, from Consider Bardwell Farm.
You might recall that these are the cheeses I used to purchase at the Farmer’s Market when I went to pick up before we had a dairy share, so you can imagine how excited I was to just get to have them this time!
So, Its damn hot so I have been making tons of salads and curries, currently searching for a new way to sneak all this chard in to my belly. Suggestions so far have been fritters and lasagna! Sounds delightful! I might make some in my oven when its dark outside so I don’t melt over the stove. ; )
Now I am off to compete in the sold out Ice Cream Takedown! More on that later!
See you soon! Hope nothing melts!!!!!
Creative and delicious looking uses of your CSA haul. That ice pool is a great idea for keeping cold dishes cold.
Just stumbled upon your blog and I think the name is hilarious 🙂 Love your red white and blue foods!
