My farmer brought me a wonderful assortment in my "half bushel" of veggies. His mixed greens are outstanding, but I think everyone probably knows how to dump stuff in a bowl for a salad. To us, the star of the week was this beauty:
We never expected to find that as part of the "half bushel"! It was the best watermelon we've had in several years. I won't be letting anyone snag a watermelon from the supermarket again real soon.
So, from the farmer's bounty, I bring you a 5 minute veggie side. Boring, but necessary, since these babies will be arriving in everyone's gardens in droves soon!
1/2 stick (4 tbsp) unsalted butter
1/4 tsp salt
20 turns of pepper
2 medium squash - zucchini or summer
Melt the butter in a sauce pan. Slice the squash thin, add to the melted butter, and add the salt and pepper. Stir constantly for the first minute, to get all pieces of squash coated with butter, then cover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring about once a minute, until tender-crisp.This is a delicately flavored side, excellent with poultry!
Later in the week, you'll see what happened with the peaches; you're going to love it.
