The tomatoes and basil that are still hanging on outside are finishing this summer off right. One night, we baked tilapia filets with dried herbs, crushed red pepper flakes, lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil. I mixed in chopped basil with brown rice and made a salsa with onions, garlic, tomatoes and lemon juice. The fresh ingredients don’t need much enhancement, but I always drown my food in hot sauce (not pictured because it’s embarrassing). It’s bad, and Trev suggests maybe I should cut back before my insides start dissolving.
I have been cooking and using my garden a lot, but I’ve also been seeing a lot of D.C. and the surrounding area. Here are some pictures. I love my new iPhone because my camera’s always with me.
