Today was the annual Farm Day at Plato's Harvest Organic Farm What is Farm day you ask? It is the day where Farmer Dave & his wife, Sasha organize a family fun day right there on the farm complete with food, music, hayrides and of course the stars of the show, Plato & Einstein...and all of their animal friends.
this Edammame & white bean salad Once I had made it, I felt like it wasn't enough.... hindsight, I should have doubled it form the start. Unfortunately I did not have any more edamamme.. or cannelloni beans. So I improvised. I added a can of Chick peas, rinsed & drained and Black Beans, rinsed & drained. I also doubled the dressing since I was adding more legumes..
*note to self* Tj's trip this week.... you are out of edamamme....
Some pics from the day..

Scott & I picked some in hopes to be able to make some jam..
we weren't able to enough because they were too high for us short folk, but we did stop & buy some organic California grown grapes on the way home to add, so hopefully jam will be in our future ;)
Now we are home, I have a small batch of Sauce simmering on the stove.... a chocolate zucchini bread in the oven.... this time I tried in in a bundt pan.... I'll let you know how it turns out ;)
and all is well in the world....... time for a glass of wine and some burgers on the grill on my last night of summer... in my kids' eyes.... Ali ( my youngest) starts her Sophomore year of high school on Tuesday, so this is her last night of summer :( boy did that go fast!!!!
I'm not just talking about the summer ......
