Shots of Summer

Just a few quick shots to remind us that summer has finally arrived.  I’m proud to say that some of this produce is from my own tiny backyard garden plot!

Goodies from Sweet Life Patisserie – I love the hand-painted look of the tiny flowers on the square of chocolate:

  1. It was good, although I think I would make three minor changes.
    1.) I would add the peas later on in the cooking process. I stirred them with the rice for a while and they were just a touch more cooked than I would have liked.
    2.) I would have added more squash blossoms (alas, I only had what the garden made available in that moment).
    3.) I added some lemon zest, which it really didn’t need, so I’d omit that. Otherwise, very creamy and summery!
