Tomato Zucchini Salad with Garbanzo Beans and Red Wine Vinaigrette

No comments:
Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling.

~William Wordsworth

Summer's last hurrah is this week.  Here in Montana, it looks as if the last of the hot weather is finally giving way to the cooler temperatures of fall. Soon the leaves will be changing, displaying their autumn beauty.  And the first snows will appear on the mountain tops. The GFCF Experience will be changing too, to its fall hues.

But summer still has some treasures left to share.  The last of summers harvest awaits.  There are plenty of tomatoes on the vines that will hopefully ripen soon.  And one more batch of green beans to be picked.  There are even some carrots - late in arriving, but surprisingly productive.  And speaking of productive, I don't think I will ever run out of zucchini.

More after the jump...

Granola

No comments:
The smart campaign is not to get McDonald’s to serve better food but to get people to see cooking as a joy rather than a burden, or at least as part of a normal life.

~ Mark Bittman

Mark Bittman, food journalist and author, is known for his thoughts on the misconception that junk food is cheaper than healthy food, and has shown that a family of four can indeed eat a healthy, home cooked meal for about half the cost of eating at McDonalds.  

So what does this quote have to do with granola?  After all, granola is considered a healthy food.

The answer after the jump.

I will get to the point right before the jump...

This is a wonderful cookbook.

And I think the Julia Child quote above very much describes the author of the cookbook, Carrie Forbes.
