Summer on Nantucket is anything but calm! There is so much going on that we hardly have time to eat a meal together let alone cook together, but amidst the chaos the hubs and I made the time to enjoy some food and each other. It was an easy dinner made of fresh veggies from my neighbors garden and a friends farm!
|Introducing this adorable Lemon Cucumber!|

Blistered Green Beans
Lemon Cucumbers with green onions dressed with olive oil, S&P, and lemon juice
Sometimes the fastest food seems like the best idea. I have had so many big bowl/fridge emptying salads lately. Don't get me wrong, this girl loves a big salad but taking the time to cook this meal together really helped us melt away from the stresses and just take the time to nourish our bodies and our souls. Food is so magical.
Recipe: Carrot Top Pesto
Tops from one bunch of carrots
1-2 garlic cloves, depends on how much you like garlic
handful of raw almonds
1/3 Cup olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Place everything, except olive oil, in a food processor. Pulse until everything is finely chopped, then stream in the olive oil. Add more oil if you like it on the thinner side. Then, TADA..done!
Roast sweet potato wedges in a 425 degree oven for 25 minutes and then toss with the pesto. It is just the yummiest.
