this month is all about the food

July has been a big food and cooking month for me.

Aside from hitting up the farmers’ market down the road every Saturday and Wednesday, I also have been frequenting Zingerman’s deli and bakery for fresh bread and cheese, and paid a visit to Detroit’s Eastern Market last weekend.  So much is in season right now, and I’ve been looking for recipes to use it all and to celebrate the freshness of it all.

So what have I been eating?

  • Tomato sandwiches left, right and center, but more on these at a later date.
  • A lot of recipes from my current favorite food blog such as Sweet Potato and Chard Gratin
  • Smokey Sesame Peas
  • Creamed Chard and Spring Onions over pasta and over rice
  • Israeli Couscous Salad with roasted tomatoes and fresh parsley and olives
  • roasted root vegetables
  • kishumba – a dish from the Usambara mountains where I lived in Tanzania, masshed potatoes with beans, green peppers, carrots, and onions mixed in.
  • cherries, raspberries and apricots.  all fresh and local
As you can see, I should be paid for all the advertising I do for  But seriously, I love Deb’s recipes.  They’re always delicious and beautiful.
It’s only half way through the month, and there is still so much fresh to take advantage of.  In the next couple weeks I’m looking forward to finding ways to use green beans, sour cherries, peaches, zucchini, sweet corn and so much more.
I’m already looking at this recipe, and I’m very excited to find more.
