Today has been an outdoor kind of day-lots to do. My squash had stopped producing so I went ahead and removed them. I have a couple of new seedlings that will be ready to plant in the next week-hope they can survive this heat. Spices are still blasting away and I have one (1) okra (what do I do with that?). We are getting a new tomato every day, the peppers are still blooming and I am already thinking about the fall garden. The mowing and weed eating is DONE and the repair I did to the mower was successful. Whew!
Today for lunch I finished the leftover broccoli-coconut curry and then made lunch for the next couple of days. This is what I came up with:
- 1 cup canned low-sodium kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 cup frozen yellow corn
- 1 cup frozen edamame
- 1 small tomato, diced
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 3 radishes, diced
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
- 1/4 cup purple onion, diced small
- 1 Tablespoon garlic, minced (I used the pre-minced in oil)
Mix all vegetables in bowl and chill.
For the dressing I made a spicy Thai blend. I only made a small amount because I will most likely crave something different tomorrow (and of course I will have leftover vegetables). This dressing has a flavor similar to duck sauce. YUM! Tasted it-immediately covered it with foil (for a good reason).
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1 Tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 teaspoon agave nectar
- 1/2 teaspoon sriracha sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Have a great day!
