WINNER'S DINNER

     You have to be in it to win it! Markus spends hours on end in his garage working on his vintage race bike and just making it to the race and getting the engine to start is a gigantic feat. So when he came in second place he deserved a winner's dinner!
     We both get CSAs and we both get so sick of certain vegetables that come in week after week. Like zucchini. I had to reinvent zucchini a million ways this summer. This time I made Zucchini Potato Pancakes with Trader Joe's dill yogurt dip. These were fried and yummy. Just shred zucchini with potatoes and onion. Make a batter with some egg and form into patties and fry. Easy!

Another fruit that has been haunting our fruit share is peaches! I made peach boats again! Peach, blue cheese, an almond and balsamic creme. No complaints. And of course, the Hitachini!!! Such a great Japanese import. And I love repeating it over and over. Hitachini! Hitachini!
        I made my roasted eggplant and pepper dip and put it on a panini with mozzarella. I am never disappointed when I dust off the panini press.
      And again with the zucchini! Zucchini Carpaccio, a dish I discovered at a tapas bar in Amagansett this summer called Exile. Sliced very thinly zucchini drizzle in olive oil, roasted pine nuts and parmesan cheese. Some parsley and a little balsamic creme is nice here, too.

Ricky Bobby said that 2nd place is just the 1st loser.

I forgot how good this meal was, thank you!

Those paninis probably go well with the bugs in his teeth. Nyuk nyuk.
