We had all these grand plans for a big garden this year, but really haven't had time to till up the plot (although it's the perfect spot!), so we have this one tiny area and then a bunch of containers. I'm so excited about the tomatoes - that's one of my very favorite things about summer, so I'm very ready for them to be ready to eat. We've also got some bell peppers growing, and lots of herbs. I just put some zucchini plants I had started in the ground, and have some squash and cantaloupe I need to get in the ground as well. I did happen to throw some cantaloupe seeds in a mole hole in our yard, and noticed some sprouts this week. I really didn't think they would grow, but they have, so I guess we'll have some cantaloupe in the middle of the yard.
Despite not having much time to make new dishes lately, I did try Pastor Ryan's Shrimp Risotto tonight, and it did not disappoint. If you haven't tried this yet, you should - it's fabulous!
