Winter Wonderland Outside, but Inside We’re Eating From the Garden

Corn Chowder and Yellow Squash Bread with flash frozen Cilantro and Green Onion Garnish

The garden is shrouded in snow (see previous post) and it’s hard even to take the vegetable scraps to the compost pile, but lunchtime is a snap because of all the soups I made and froze last summer when the garden was at its peak of production.  A typical lunch is soup, (such as tomato, minnestrone or corn chowder) together with toasted summer squash bread and a piece of green tomato mince pie for dessert.  My garlic is still firm and plump although I need to remove the sprout forming inside each clove to avoid the bitterness that imparts to a dish.  We’ve finished the potatoes and onions so I now have to buy those.  The freezer is still contains lots of Bolognese sauce, Fra Diavolo sauce and vegetables.  I rest on my hard work of last summer and look forward to the spring.
