We've reached the glorious time of year when the garden no longer suggests a menu - it demands it.
On Monday morning, my little sister leaves for a year abroad in Japan. During the last two weeks, my mom and I have been making her favorite foods - puff pancakes, homemade pizza, Jucy Lucy burgers, meatloaf, lemon linguine. But tonight the garden is throwing in its vote as well. So along with our lasagna, tonight we'll feast on cucumber salad and roasted green beans.
Had I been able to stop myself from eating every last one, we might have had berries over ice cream for dessert.
