Vegetable gardening definitely triggers temporary insanity. A gardening friend in Indiana e-mailed me about her frantic midnight lima bean harvest last month when an unexpected frost threatened to kill her plants. And a customer at The Cutting Garden recently ordered flowers to be sent to her 86 year old aunt who broke an arm and a leg when she fell off the top of a wall while she was pruning her lemon tree.
In my defense, the eggplant was needed for David's latest kitchen creation: tostadas with black beans, cotija cheese, and eggplant. On the side, an amazing salsa made with our fresh tomatillos and jalapenos. Thankfully, I harvested the tomatillos and jalapenos before the storm hit. I savored the dinner flush with the excitement of surviving danger in the name of gourmet cooking. David just thinks I'm insane. Please confess your craziest behavior in the name of a great meal - I know I'm not alone.
ps Recipes for the tostada and tomatillo jalapeno salsa coming soon...
