Typical Summer Meal

Here is a sample meal from my mother. And yes, she is a creative genius in the kitchen — she rarely looks at recipes and constantly uses her imagination to combine the freshest ingredients she finds. The key is organic and fresh veggies!

 

Tomato, Cucumber, Parsley, Anchovy salad. Fresh veggies from the CSA. True perfection.

Delicious right? No wonder I have gained weight this summer!!!! I am so fortunate to have had my mother cook for us the past 10 weeks! Thank you, Mama! You are truly an inspiration.
