Brats and sauerkraut again.  This time with a fried egg, mustard, toast, and a friend to share it with!  Even better :)

Sauerkraut scramble and a brat for breakfast. One of the better ideas I’ve had. The brat is from Roan Creek Ranch in Colorado.

Homemade pitas with eggplant sauce.  I was thinking of baba ganoush, but I didn’t have any tahini, so this is just roasted eggplants with roasted hot peppers and garlic, basil, and cilantro.  It’s an amazing sauce!

Another in a series of questionable-looking-but-delicious sauces…this one is roasted shishito pepper sauce.  I didn’t take off the peel of the peppers, which made the sauce a bit chunky, but there wasn’t much meat inside…

Cilantro, apple, hot pepper, honey, and garlic sauce that I put on a bean salad.  I should have kept them separate, or made more sauce, because the great flavor of the sauce was lost in the salad.

I need to make more pizza before summer is over!  Pesto, prosciutto, tomatoes, pine nuts, and mozzarella make a mighty nice pizza!

After you make bacon, you can’t just get rid of the magic that’s left in the pan!!  So I fried corn, onions, and tomatoes in the bacon grease.  As soon as the pasta was done, I mixed it with an egg and Greek yogurt carbonara sauce and then tossed in the bacon and sautéed veggies.

I was so happy to be back in Michigan for a week this summer.  I grilled up some burgers with my mom with this fantastic view, and made some pesto for the corn on the cob.  An unlikely combination, and delicious!

Tuesday is taco night at the house!  Roasted a bunch of garlic for a pesto sauce and pan roasted some carrots with garlic scapes.

Erin samples the CREAMIEST mint chocolate chip ice cream that I made for birthday girl Julia.  The mint was fresh from the garden—way better than extract!

Charlotte models the delicious salad we made for a Fourth of July get together.  The thing worth mentioning about the salad (not that the whole thing wasn’t delicious) is the dressing—apricot garlic parsley.  Jess made a really good point that because we have so many apricots (the tree in the backyard is loaded), we get to play around and experiment with the surplus.  Sure, we’ve eaten so many just straight off the tree, but putting them in dressing is special.  And delicious!

(That’s us in front of a magical apricot Moab sunset.)
