Scraps and Snippets ~ A Farm Report and Dinner Party Deliciousness

Vegan jalapeno poppers and 7 Layer Dip
Heirloom tomato Rainbow

Farming was easy peasy and without injury. I killed nothing, sliced nothing off my body. I didn't fall or slide around inside my mock Crocs and pull any muscles. I snapped Swiss Chard and chatted with one of the farmers. I didn't see a bug til we were packing the boxes. Of course, it wasn't just a bug, it was a big old spider. But that's beside the point.

Really? Do I need to post a caption?

In our CSA packs we scored grapes. Gotta make some jam. And the tomatoes, tail end of season and the survivors of the hail, are delicious. I made Pomodoro for dinner. Yum.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake with Chocolate Ganache

The rest of the pictured food is Vegan party food. A Vegan 7 layer dip, Vegan jalapeno poppers, Vegan spinach and artichoke dip. Zucchini double chocolate bundt cake with chocolate ganache. 24 was a beast. It was her party, so I got to help and eat. I'll try to pry those recipes out of her. She's kind of a dash and pinch kind of cook. I did de-seed the jalapenos and have been breathing free since I did participated in that little activity.
