What’s in Season – Cantaloupes!

Mmmmmm nothing quenches your thrist on a hot summer day like cold melon. And today we’re talking about Cantaloupes! They are in season

cantaloupe

and plentiful throughout the store – so order one today for some snack by the pool or sprinklers later tonight!

Remember, cantaloupes are already picked ripe, so make sure to cut it up once you get it, and store any left overs in the fridge.

Not the biggest fan of cantaloupe? Try it with other flavors!

I never used to be a big cantaloupe eater, but my favorite during summer is to pair it with proscuitto and and hard cheese. The melon compliments the meat and cheese and is a little party in your mouth. Give it a try!

Or try sprinkling a few pieces into your next grilled chicken salad. Cantaloupe and meats pair well!

Basil Basil Everywhere!

Have you noticed the lovely aroma of basil swirling around you everywhere you go? We have tons of fresh, local basil in store – and tons of ideas to add some flavor to your dinner tonight!

Last week we said to pair it with feta and watermelon. So why not sprinkle some fresh chopped leaves over your pizza tonight? Or on top of your beef or chicken dish before you bake or sautee it?

Our favorite way to enjoy basil? Over a hot plate of pasta! (In the air conditioning of course!!) Even though it sounds fancy and hard to make, Pesto is a really easy sauce to create yourself! We make it all the time at home, and even freeze the leftovers for a quick dinner down the road! The cool part about pesto? You can’t really mess it up – and you can get creative with the ingredients as well! Have a blender? Then you’re all ready to go!

Making Your Own HomeMade Basil Pesto

 

  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts or pine nuts (or our substitute – almonds!)
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups basil leaves (about 4 ounces)  – or another great herb to try here is Parsley. Yes, parsley!!
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend it all together little by little, adding more to your taste as you go. Viola! Throw over a fresh plate of hot pasta and you have a delicious, fresh gourmet meal in minutes! WARNING! You’re family is going to start calling you Martha.
