So after I read Bethy’s last post I thought “You better believe I love summer!” Kim and I were both outside a lot today and we were really not thinking much about what to have for dinner. But then we got hungry, and remembered that we had two bundles of red pepper pasta left from Ohio City Pasta, some vegetables, and lovely lettuce and scallions from Birdsong Farm. We also had bought some corn from Krieger’s this week even though we know it’s not time yet. Sometimes you look at it and can’t wait! So Kim grilled zucchini, asparagus, mushrooms with Trindad lemon garlic Penzey’s spice and served it on the pasta with just grated romano cheese. We had corn and the salad of just greens and scallions with just olive oil and balsamic vinegar from the Olive Scene. We literally looked up and said, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is!” We almost always listen to Folk Alley when we eat , and someone was playing a hammered dulcimer. We decided that it was the perfect instrument to accompany this meal. What is your favorite music to listen to while dining? Either singing and/or musical instruments? Don’t overthink it. Just name the first that comes to you. That way you really mean it.
