an august dinner

Tonight, Eric and I whipped up a yummy, local dinner in about 23 minutes.
Yup. I'm very proud.


He had the brilliant idea to saute some green peppers we picked up from Suburban Harvest earlier, a red onion I got from one of my favorite local growers (organic, too!) and some local garlic. The smell of cooking is so amazing when you haven't really cooked in a while.

We used this super yummy whole wheat with flax seed pasta and that amazing jar of olive and caper marinara sauce.

It was sooooo good. The best part was getting a clove of garlic (he only halved them) in a bite. Oh, the goodness that is sauteed garlic...

And the salad was super yummy too. How's this close up action of the perfect peppers??



Don't walk, run to your local farmer's market and pick up some dinner! There's nothing better than super fresh veggies. Especially when you met the person who grew them.

So true - nothing like it! Also, Al Dente products are wonderful. ;-)

I'm glad you agree about Al Dente! Eric doesn't like whole wheat pasta but whatever... I love it!

That looks so delicious. It's 7:00 a.m. as I read this, and I want it for breakfast.

It would make an excellent breakfast! Especially if you just saved the peppers and onions and garlic, and put all that on top of scrambled eggs. Oh, I'm so hungry... Can you tell?
