I foofed around in the kitchen. I didn't have the spoons to make a whole meal. We ordered hamburgers. I did eventually get some stuff done for future suppers.

I made a one pot meal of Italian sausage, beans, pasta, and greens. Topped with Parmigiana Reggiano. Refreshed the baguette from the other day. Quick and easy.

It was a hot one here today, so I made a nice cold dinner: tuna pasta salad over romaine with tomatoes and pickled banana peppers.

I haven't cooked anything here for a few days, except boiling water for iced tea, and steamed a couple of veggies in the MW. It's just been too hot!

Today I had a couple more bowls of that gazpacho, for lunch, then in the late afternoon, and then I made a salad later on, with some cooked barley, some diced tomatoes and cucumbers, a very small clove of garlic, mashed, and minced with a generous amount of basil and a jalapeño pepper, some diced feta cheese, and some snipped garlic chives. The dressing was some white rice vinegar and a fairly strong EVOO, salt, and a generous amount of black pepper.

I found the frozen (!) barley when I was putting some things in the freezer a couple of days ago, and it was about 2 c, left from a bunch I had cooked a couple of months ago, and it froze well - just thawed it, rinsed it well, and drained. I halved the cucumber, scooped out the seeds, and diced it - ended up being about half the volume of the tomatoes, that I kept adding, until it looked right! I used a large Amish Gold Slicer, which is a fairly fleshy tomato, and a smaller Brandyboy F2, a fairly fleshy one, too, and the best tasting! I diced up 4 green grapes, adding them one at a time, until it looked about right. Then I stirred in the other ingredients. Absolutely delicious, and 2 bowls left for tomorrow!

The feta was a new (to me) variety I got from Aldi, and it was good, but mild - I'll post my thoughts on that elsewhere.
