When life hands you garlic scapes,
you make pesto and whipped garlic scape butter!
A fun mum and daughter project.
We had enough scapes from our patch to make many batches of each.
The scapes are taken from the garlic plants to encourage better garlic bulb growth.
The bulbs will be pulled in a few weeks (as the plants die down a bit and the bulbs
are fully developed).
Always a lot of work but so worth it for that fresh juicy Ontario grown garlic.
Not too much has happened since my last post, other than more and more
doctoring and treatments for the farmer.
We continue to be so humbled and thankful for all the prayers and love!
We have been making treatment days an excuse for patio dining, now that things
are opening up again.
The crusty bread dipped in EVO and Balsamic Vinegar,
disappeared almost immediately as we waited
for the delicious Italian entrees of
stuffed Penne and Lasagna.
I loved their oil and vinegar dispenser and am keeping a look out
for a similar one.
The Balsamic Vinegar inside the oil looks like a clump of grapes!
The waiter told us they were purchased at the Dollar Store.
Our weather has been very hot lately (not as hot tho as
my readers from the West), and the banana's needed attention.
A little hotter in the kitchen that afternoon ...
This is one of my favourite banana bread recipes:
I just added some brown sugar icing to the top - so delish.
|Also managed to make a fresh batch of our favourite granola|
The peaceful Stratford Festival Gardens deserve an almost weekly Sunday visit.
Soon the "tent" will be lively with some patrons
watching an outdoor production or two.
This is the second season for the festival being mostly cancelled
due to Covid - as is with all things!
The show must go on ...
and the field corn is definitely knee high ... so much moisture and heat units!
We are blessed.
And, July 1st brings us to Canada Day.
A somber Canada Day this year ...
