GTTC 8/14/11

This week's meals have been relatively simple. My Cherokee Purple Tomatoes from the Farmer's Market was mixed with a few leaves of homegrown lettuce to make a delicious BLT. Mmm...bacon!

I fried up some homegrown Shishito Peppers (and some Farmer's Market Padron Peppers) for this very simple but tasty dish of Pan Fried Peppers.
I pulled some of the larger beets and roasted them up.

I then served them on a satisfying Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Salad. I even made a homemade Marionberry Balsamic Vinaigrette for the salad.
Summer means berry season. I picked some Marionberries and canned my first jam of the season.
This is a seedless Marionberry Jam. I love how pretty it looks!

Interesting. I've never heard of Marionberries before. I will have to try to find some.

All the food looks great! Even after a big dinner, the BLT still made me a bit hungry :)

Marionberries are new to me too. I wonder if they go by a different name in the U.K.

ben & shaheen: If you click on the original post for the Marionberry Jam, you'll see my explaination of the Marionberry. It's a hybrid developed here in Oregon. It's a blackberry and you may not find it outside the Pacific NW. They're really tasty though!

Ben: Who can resist a BLT??

the red headed traveler: LOL! Thanks!

wendy: Another BLT lover huh? Mmm...bacon!
