Home Grown

While we might not always like summer rain showers, it sure does help our garden. One of Kanibal Home's big dreams is to open a brick-and-mortar storefront that has a backyard. And a garden is a must. We've been fantasizing about the day when we could have a real plot -- not just a collection of plastic pots on a terrace -- for quite some time. Basil and Italian parsley are easy patio plants along with tomatoes (although we eat more than we could ever grow), but this year we also planted zucchini. And with all the rain New Jersey has been getting lately it looks like our experiment is actually flowering and might produce something edible.

i LOVE squash blossoms!!! stuffed squash blossoms with an herbed goat cheese or ricotta are delicious! unfortunately, to get the best result, you need to lightly bread them [egg wash, flour, panko if you're really seeking out crunch, but that might overwhelm the delicate delectability of the blossom itself]and then fry those suckers until golden! sprinkle with a little salt, or grated cheese... mmm... is it summer yet?? :o(
