    No baking for me today, but Will made sourdough biscuits and will be making sourdough bread later today or tomorrow.

    It's way too hot and muggy here to start thinking about fall cooking 🙂

    I made Greek chicken meatballs baked on a sheet pan with yellow squash, leek and kalamata olives. With it we had a tomato/cucumber salad and orzo. It was a nice light dinner from the Washington Post newsletter, Eat Voraciously.

    The peach coffee cake is delicious! It’s definitely a keeper - the cake was tender and the streusel nice and crispy. I can see making it it with other fruits - blueberries, apples etc.

    On Sunday, Will had leftovers and I made my Mediterranean white bean and tuna salad with avocado (they we’re on sale) and spinach. Last night I had leftovers and he had tuna, Carolina rice and peas. He’s made a huge pasta salad for dinner tonight and I’m looking forward to it - extra long day at work.

    Will has been making tortillas (I missed them while he was gone) He found a video on YouTube with a woman who was making them traditionally. He rolls them out on our kitchen counter - flour all over the counter - with my long French-style rolling pin. He cooks them on the Baking Steel. He has gotten quite good at it.

    I made a peach coffee cake from Southern Living. A friend had given me 3 very ripe (read almost overripe) peaches that I needed to use. It looks good, but we haven't cut into it yet.

    The recipe called for heavy cream but I only had half & half so I hope it's OK.

    Will is back and is making dinner tonight. Baked chicken tenders (no propane yet for grilling) with marinade made with Sassy Mustard (a Georgia Grown Co. that I picked up at the Atlanta Market for the store) and rosemary; Carolina Gold Rice - my rep from Marsh Hen Mill gave me samples of the Carolina Gold Rice and Rice Middlins which are cooked like grits; and sautéed broccoli.

    It's nice to have him back after a long day at work.

    I was talking to a local landscaper on Monday - even she has given up trying to grow tomatoes down here!

    I made linguini with an olive oil garlic sauce and it came out very well. Leftovers tomorrow. I had some cherry tomatoes with it.

    I have not been feeling like cooking much lately

    Love the cartoon BA - your flatbread sounds delicious!

    Joan, glad you enjoyed your pie, AND that it has a place to go so you’re not tempted. I hoped you enjoyed your visit with your niece.

    Tonight will be cheese sandwiches on my Harvest bread with the last of the watermelon salad. Will will be back on Thursday and then we can grill again as he will be able to get propane for me.

    My son in New Zealand said I HAD to watch The Bear, 1) because he says it’s good and 2) because we work in food and beverage - we both worked at the 5-star restaurant for the resort (5-6 years ago). I’m happier working at The Market and he’s happier working at a restaurant in Wellington where they moved in April - they love Wellington!

    I've had several slices of the bread - it is good, especially toasted, but I feel like it's a little bland. I followed the recipe using AP and WWW instead of Whole Wheat as that is what I had on hand - the recipe called for organic flour, but I wasn't going there. I'll probably use more WWW next time and maybe some sourdough starter - Will will be home on Thursday - I haven't fed the starter he left since he's been gone. I will make it again and experiment with it.

    I'll probably toast the pecans the next time, too.
