A recipe I cut out of a magazine a long time ago, inspired me to create this. The magazine version used barbecue sauce, but I thought it would taste better with a homemade sweet and sour sauce instead. The dish is still very easy to make and the kids loved it.

Bubble and Squeak
Bubble and Squeak is a traditional English dish. I found this recipe in the Whole Foods for the Whole Family cookbook. Some people say the name comes from the sound that it makes while cooking.

Tomato and Artichoke Heart Salad
A plate full of this and some bread along side would make an excellent dinner. I think this might be my favorite way to eat summer tomatoes. It’s definitely in the top 59 ways to eat them 😉 We had this salad with Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Boats. It makes for a fabulous combination. This recipe also comes from the New Recipes from Moosewood Restaurant cookbook.
Cucumbers and Onions
It’s hot outside. Want something cool and crunchy with lunch or dinner? Here you go.
I wish I had cucumbers from the garden for this, but my cucumber plant is pitiful. It got hit hard by a late frost and just can’t seem to grow at all, let alone produce cucumbers. Luckily, I can still find good cukes at the farmers market or plain ol’ Walmart.
