I went back into my classroom this week for the first time. New job, new school, new classroom, lots to do. But it's starting to get me back into the "get my act together and be an organized person" frame of mind. And I know that soon, we'll need to start planning meals again instead of just sauteeing whatever's looking good from the garden.
But that's not happening quite yet. We're still aimless summer eaters, but I wanted to share what we had for dinner last night:
Venison chops from Phil's deer, sauteed in a bit of butter for just a minute or so
Corn on the cob FROM OUR GARDEN! It lived! It actually grew ears of corn! (Last year we weren't so lucky. Our neighbor told us we need to plant more than one row so it can pollinate.)
Green beans, including some that were purple -- do you just call them purple beans? We got them at a farm stand up north last weekend.
And the cutest little baby carrots you've ever seen. We grew them, and they're just adorable. They're the size of my tiny stubby fingers and tasty as candy. This is them:
Aren't they cute?
