I'm feeling inspired today after a trip to Delicious Orchards. Plum tomatoes were $1.29/lb. so I am making another batch of fresh tomato sauce. Corn season is dwindling down, therefore, I picked up some corn, 6 ears for $3.49, to make my corn chowder. New Jersey green squash was $0.99/lb. so I am thinking either grilled zucchini tomorrow night or zucchini muffins...which to choose, or both.
Then since I had the fig butter from Rook on a bagel, I picked up a jar of fig spread (Dala Original Fig Spread $5.25) to make my own flavored butter. Now I need to pick up at bagel somewhere.
Tomato season is short too; a ball of fresh mozzarella ($8.99/lb) will go with our garden heirloom tomatoes for a nice salad for tomorrow's supper.
America's Test Kitchen demonstrated a recipe for braised halibut with leeks and mustard. I have some fluke from my neighbor that I thought I would try it with, however, I forgot to get the leeks for the recipe. I'll see if Whole Foods has some reasonably priced leeks or I'll check the large ShopRite on Route 34. Back to cooking!
