I'm Back!

It feels so good to feel like I can stand long enough to make food again! My mom bought a huge steak at the Farmer's Market today (one good thing about that Market ... everything else pretty much was disappointing) and sweet corn at the Amish Farm, so to go along with that I decided to make some fresh green beans that we bought at another farm stand a couple days ago and another tomato salad. Ah, fresh produce. My tomato Salad pretty much is a Caprese Salad with Parmesan instead of Fresh Mozarella.

Tomato Salad
3 medium sized Beefsteak tomatoes
about 6 basil leaves
Parmesan cheese
juice of 1/2 a lemon
olive oil
salt to taste
  1. slice and quarter tomatoes to desired thickness. roll basil leaves together and slice thin with a very sharp knife (to avoid bruising). Sprinkle basil leaves on top and with a vegetable peeler, peel pieces of Parmesan cheese on top. Drizzle lemon juice and olive oil and sprinkle with salt to taste.

(Sorry, no recipe ...)

Garlic Sautéed Fresh Green Beans
1/2 lb (?) fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1~2 T butter
salt and pepper to taste
In a deep sauté pan melt the butter at medium/medium-high temperature. Add green beans and salt and pepper and sauté until parts of the green bean turn a bright green. Add minced garlic and continue stirring. Keep cooking until green beans are tender-crisp and slightly browned in parts. Serve warm.
