A big bag 'o veggies and the husband's ice cream pick

More veggies!  It's like they keep bringing them every week or something.  This week's bag:  a giant tomato (salad tonight), green beans (roasted with olive oil and onions), blueberries, basil, and sweet corn (sauteed with zucchini).

Apparently, I stored the basil incorrectly, because it got all wilty.  Good thing I'm growing my own.  I've really enjoyed this experiment.  I'll admit that there were times that I just pitched stuff after letting it sit and moulder for a couple of weeks.  But we've tried and even liked some new veggies.

I'd never taken the corn off of a cob before.  It was amazingly easy.  I sauteed it in a little olive oil and butter and tossed in a zucchini from the previous week's bag.  A dash of salt and pepper and even the kids ate it!  The onions from tonight's dinner were from last week as well.  They added a nice flavor component to the beans.

We made the husband's ice cream today.  Honey with Toasted Sesame Seeds.  It was very creamy and I liked the sesame taste.  The honey was a bit much for me, but I'm not particularly a fan of honey.

I've already made next week's TWD.  I may have to make them again.  And again.  And again.

I love the sound of the honey and toasted sesame seeds ice cream. I will have to try something like that. It would be great to follow a Greek or Middle Eastern meal.

What a unique idea for ice cream! I'm happy to hear that you like next week's TWD pick. I am making the cookies today and now you've got me really excited to try them!
