simple Augustan meals

broiledzucchiniI must say that this is a joy that you only get for a few weeks a year when you live in Chicago.

I stopped at the farmer’s market on my way home from work. At home I cut up the zucchini, an heirloom tomato and some fresh herbs (from my little urban porch garden), mixed up the dressing and broiled it all for a few minutes (recipe) dropped it onto some fresh spinach and dinner was served.

…if only I was drinking (sigh) but I’m not. It is my “no bagel breakfasts/no potato chip lunches/no wine dinners” diet. I’m not sure if it is working.

But there were little plums and sun-gold cherry tomatoes for dessert!
