What's For Dinner?
I'm always talking about growing food, but seldom about eating it. On tonight's menu, besides a boring slice of ham, we have grilled Eight Ball zucchini, Circus Circus tri-colored carrot blend from Renee's Garden Seeds, baby red Pontiac potatoes in butter and Borsari Season Salt and a Sweet Success cucumber and Sun Gold tomato salad drizzled with Italian dressing. And of course, homemade Reisling wine from Mike and Shelly's wine cellar.
That Borsari seasoning salt is a staple in my kitchen. I use it alot on vegetables, potatoes and pork. It is a friend of mine's old family recipe. The past few years, he and his wife have gone into marketing this salt along with another salt, olive oil, and a delicious bloody mary mix. If any of you have a Wegman's grocery in your area, Wegman's has picked up the salt and begun selling it under Wegman's label as "Garlic Herb Seasoning Shaker". Same stuff. A couple of weeks ago I ran into her passing out samples at our local Wegman's and she gave me a great Gazpacho recipe using their products and a lot of fresh veggies. I may have to feature that someday soon.
