yesterday - james and i got some wood and made a raised
bed for a backyard vegetable garden.
today we went and got the smelly soil and put it
in the bed and then planted two different kinds of tomatoes,
some summer squash and some chives...
here is what the squash blossoms should look
like when summer time come around!
small, delicate, orange blossoms
that will be ready to wash...
or they might look like this on a blue glass plate-
side by side in a neat little row...
then i can make all sorts of delicious plates like this one...
just follow this recipe by Laurel Miller, except for the filling, simply mix cream cheese with a minced garlic clove and some chopped chives and oregano from the garden. also fry several just with the masa harina batter and leave out the cheesy filling. they are delicious and really allow you to appreciate the blossom's subtle flavor.
FRIED SQUASH BLOSSOMS WITH GARLIC-CHEESE FILLING
or you can put some on a pizza -
along with some pine nuts and zucchini or slices of squash!
