Italian food, lasagna and much more

Italian food – ideal for a cold fall evening. Just breathe in that lovely tomato-garlicky aroma! This summer I discovered a recipe that isĀ  a very light version of eggplant parmigiana that is made by layering vegetables, eggplant, peppers, carrots, mushrooms etc., and without the cheese. Come to think of it, it is time to give it another try. Don’t let the preparation discourage you, the dish freezes quite well. So make a big batch and enjoy, and don’t worry about the calories!

So much for food. Recently I came upon a post that talks about “Lasagna Gardening“. Sounds different enough to get my attention! A promise to cut back on weeds and give the old vegetable patch an energy boost in one easy step? It sounded so good that I grabbed all the newspapers I could find and went out on this foggy, drizzly morning to get started. Huge potential there!

What’s for dinner?

not sure what else, but definitely something with tomatoes and cucumbers ;)



How easily things come together in the kitchen when the garden provides. I am really excited about the variety of tomatoes that seem to appear all of a sudden. Now, if I were a truly organized person I could of course predict what I am growing. But since most of the plants come from seeds that I picked out of interesting looking tomatoes bought at an Organic Foods Market in Florida last winter, the surprises keep coming.
