Let's continue our chat about all things cooking. What do you serve up to eat, something special, an old T&T recipe perhaps. Keep us up to date on your latest good eats.

Don't forget to check out our previous thread, lots of good ideas there. http://cubits.org/MidAtlanticMusings/thread/view/54654/

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

On my stove tonight: vegetable barley soup.

OK, it sounds like a winter dish... but I made stock the other day with all the scraps I'd been collecting from the fresh garden veggies and decided I'd rather use it than freeze it. Onions, potatoes, and carrots were all recently harvested so I threw them in with some barley and a bit of protein (a Boca patty that had gotten a tad freezerburnt, chopped up). I'm out to harvest some parsley now to put in once the soup cools down, so it won't get too overcooked on the reheat.

I'll be eating it for lunch the next couple days. The perfect meal for "Extreme Heat Advisory" season Rolling my eyes. Blinking

Hilarious! Hilarious! Bit, I like soup no matter what time of year it is. Soup is always a good lunch. I'm very fond of Barley soup. Having lots of fresh veggie scraps on hand is all the more reason to make it!! Thumbs up

Pretty much. I eat seafood on occasion (once a month or less), but was a strict vegetarian for about ten years before I added that back to my diet. Living on the water but away from farms, it's a lot easier to find out where a fish or crab came from than a burger.

I'm sure this soup would be good with a bit of beef or sausage in place of the soy.

I usually keep meat scraps in the fridge/freezer to make soup with, but often make meat free soups. Have you been watching the recipes on our nutrition thread?

I've been posting more meat free stuff over there and just wanted to be sure that you were seeing it. Do you bake Bit?

Soup is not a half bad summer food. Easy to eat from bowl, one pot to cook, uses those veggies, simmering is not so fussy way to cook, hydrates you, goes with sandwiches...

I do bake a little. Been making a mountain of zucchini bread lately Hilarious! When it's not zucchini season, I make a lot of plain (white or wheat) bread and pumpkin bread, but I try to stay away from the really sweet stuff.

Sally, those are all good reasons. I just felt the need to put the disclaimer since most people look at me like I'm nuts if I make a soup in summer. Obviously, they aren't as practical as us gardeners.

I really can't think of a better way to get a lot of really good nutrients in a meal than soup. The only difference for me due to the weather is a tendency to make more "clear" types of soup in summer as opposed to thick stew like soups. But I still will sometimes make a pot of split pea soup no matter what the weather.

I must be the only person on the planet who has never made zucchini bread. I never grow zucchini so I don't have that impetus. I do occasionally buy zucchini, but usually mix it with yellow zucchini. I rarely eat it by itself. I enjoy it but not enough to grow it.

I've seen those zucchini cake and cookie recipes, but never had any lying around to make them.

This looks like a very easy one pan meal. I think that I would add some garlic and Rosemary or Tarragon to it though and increase the cooking time the way that a few reviewers mentioned.

I never made it either until this year. I've always grown just enough zucchini to eat and freeze, but this year the plants went crazy. I pickled zucchini, I made tons of bread, and I froze about twice as much as usual. It's winding down now, though - the vine borers finally did almost all the plants in Sad

Bit, I'm not a big one on pickles. I love the deli barrel ones and pickled green tomatoes, but that's about it. I'd be more inclined to use the frozen zucchini and would even find it useful to puree and freeze it for later cooking use.
