As I sit here with my new DC roommates ordering our first batch of groceries online — what a concept, by the way — I can’t help but reflect back on one of my favorite family memories from this summer. I cooked dinner for my family of four. And, yes, it was actually rather successful.
I started by planning out my meal from by using various food blogs and then I made my first lone trip to the farmer’s market! My now-favorite farmer helped me pick the right ears of corn, tomatoes and cucumbers for this lovely summer salad, which actually turned into more of a brightly colored salsa. He also helped me pick up soft, fuzzy peaches for this amazing peach crostada. In addition to the cool salsa-salad and the warm, luscious dessert, I served my family fish. Baked tilapia to be exact.
And boy, did we enjoy it. Now off to new cooking adventures for my lovely room of six!
