The peaches are here, the peaches are here! And my goodness, they look delicious. Peaches and tomatoes are just the first signs of the summer harvest, soon our boxes will be overflowing with local fruits. The seasons are changing and so are our meals. I don’t want to be tied up in the kitchen when I could be poolside, enjoying this beautiful weather. So this week, it’s all about easy prep and light meals.
Meal One: A salad made from that gorgeous chinese/napa cabbage will be a great way to begin my week. I’ll omit the walnuts and instead,throw in some chopped spring onion to add extra crunch and flavor.
Meal Two: I love tomatoes. Absolutely and unconditionally. But slow roasted tomatoes? I could die for! Along with a delicious local orange, they make for a great snack while enjoying yourself outside.
Meal Three: Quick doesn’t have to mean raw, stir frying is a fast way to heat up veggies. You really can’t go wrong with stir fried squash and snow peas.
Meal Four: Okay, I admit it. A roasted red potato and radish salad might not seem like easy prep, but trust me, it’s worth it. And while your veggies are roasting, you can make the Barefoot Contessa’s fresh peach bellini. Enjoy!
