On My Mind... Fresh Summer Produce!

Joining in with Rhonda at Down To Earth for an On My Mind Post.

Today, I am thinking about all of the lovely fresh produce we have in the house and what to make with it. I am currently roasting some corn on the cob in the oven for a nice light lunch. Yesterday I made use of some fresh lettuce and cucumber from the market and some tomatoes from our very own pots in this lovely salad:

I topped my delicious lunch with some leftover falafel patties and homemade tzatziki from a meal earlier this week. It was pure heaven. Recipes for falafel and tzatziki can be found here. 

Join in with our posts over at Rhonda's for some fun!

Have a lovely day,



  1. Yummmm falafel! I just came back from Israel and had plenty of delicious falafel there!

    Good for you for growing and preparing and eating (the best part! :)) some of your own food. It feels empowering, doesn't it?

    In any case, I am visiting you through Rhonda's Link Up. All the best!

    This Good Life

  2. There is nothing better than home grown tomatoes. That salad looks amazing.

  3. The salad look delicious, to cold for me at the moment, but am looking forward to fresh salads in summer. Jumped over from D2E.

  4. The salad looks wonderful.

    Popped over from Rhonda's blog to say HI.

  5. What a delicious salad to have on your mind.
    Visiting via Rhonda's blog.

  6. I've popped over from Rhonda's. That's a nice looking salad and I love your blog.

  7. That salad looks sooooo good! Growing your own vegetables is such a rewarding thing, and when it's on the table it's even better!

  8. That looks delicious, Brenna! And I have to tell you, I made rhubarb crisp the other night using your recipe, and both Matt and I loved it! Success so far with the learning to like rhubarb, thanks for the inspiriation!

  9. Hi Brenna,
    Your meal looks lovely and fresh! Encouraging to 'meet' someone else around my age who is trying to look after our good earth too. Isn't Rhonda's link-up a fun way to find out about all the interesting things others are getting up to?! Amy
