We had a wonderful supper last night that was 80% grown in our garden. There were Chiogga beets, green beans, brussel sprouts, new potatoes, summer squash, red onion, garlic and Thai basil. Plus I picked some lettuce, baby kale and dill, but decided a salad was going to be just too much! Add to that a grilled ear of corn from the corn and tomato guy and a chicken brat (1/2) and a burger for the Mad-Accountant and you have a great and filling meal.
I made the beans, beets and potatoes plain, but sauted the brussel sprouts, onion, garlic and summer squash with some Thai basil for a simple stirfry, plus cooked and then grilled the corn. Add a bit of light sour cream, whipped butter and seasoned salt- yumo!

Until next time, find your joys at home, even if they DON'T put their coat away! :)
