Nature's Beauty

Between our garden and veggies and fruits from the store, I can't believe the gorgeous colors and how many great meals you can make. 
Vegetables from the store and from a friend who cleared out her fridge before going on vacation.  Her turtle has loved it, too.  :)
Veggies from our garden
So beautiful!
Another day's haul - we have seriously been blessed with a great harvest this year.
So out of those vegetables, we have made:
Salad (kale, romaine, cucumber, tomatoes, spinach)
Blueberry scones (blueberries, duh.)
More salad and eggplant parmesan (eggplant, kale, cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, romaine)
Cherry scones
Veggie burgers (pluots, tomatoes, cucumbers)
Smoothies (cucumber, spinach, blueberries)
Zucchini Napoleons with homemade spaghetti sauce (zucchini, squash)
Egg tacos (zucchini, tomato, jalapeno)
Tomato and Cucumber salad
Spaghetti (zucchini, squash, tomatoes)
Fresh mozzarella and Tomato Paninis (zucchini, tomato)
And I have to brag that that's homemade bread, too!
The fruit has obviously been sides.  We have given away a lot of vegetables from our garden as well, and I'm going to learn to can this week, so that'll be awesome as well.  This is fun stuff!!
We LOVE having a garden, and are loving our vegetarian summer!
