Battered Squash Blossoms Omelet

Not Good Gardening This Year?

It was one hundred degrees in the shade this summer and gardens didn't quite have the bounty, they normally have. Some vegetables, I did score, were green tomatoes and squash blossoms. Believe it or not these make a very tasty breakfast omelet.

The other alternative to a poor garden bounty is, head to the supermarkets for their sales bins of vegetables with black spots and bruises. This time of year it should be overstocked with colored peppers, grape tomatoes, tomatoes, and other various squashes and potatoes.

This produce can be sliced, diced and frozen in empty bread bags. Suzzycue re-uses bread bags to freeze vegetables in because if the bags will keep the bread fresh, bread bags should also keep the frost out.

Cross-Rib Roast

Take your Cross-rib roast you bought for ten dollars and cut it into six equal portions of one inch thick slices. You put the slices one at a time into to a plastic zip-lock bag, with water and cayenne pepper. Then freeze and as they thaw out they tenderize themselves.

My secret to tenderizing meat is one tablespoon of cayenne pepper with one cup of water in a glass vinegar bottle. When you buy cheaper cuts of meat that are tough, you sprinkle this on the meat and set aside for an hour before cooking like a marinate. You will not taste or feel the heat from the cayenne. This works so well Suzzycue does it all the time.



Take one package of grape tomatoes and one big red pepper and slice up into similar size pieces. Sprinkle them with extra virgin olive oil about two tablespoons and put a sprig of rosemary on top before putting into a 350 degree oven until they get brown or soft on top.

This caramelizes the vegetables and doubles the flavours as well.


Then Suzzycue fries her steak in a cast iron frypan( missing her BBQ very much) for three minutes on each side. This will cook your steak to medium rare which is her favourite.


Pour the tomatoes and peppers over the steak and cover for five minutes so they stay warm and juices go back into the steak to keep it tender.


Plate it up and Bon-a-petit!

To Buy Or Not to Buy?

Do you look over your shoulder before buying the reduced vegetables at your supermarket?

      My garden really suffered this summer from lack of rain, even though I watered, I wasn't the same. I never plant squash but my son does, they love squash. I do not. I will share this recipe with him. Thank you for sharing..

      Thank you always exploring for stopping by. This summer was not the best for gardens sorry to say. I myself have just started to eat squash. I love zuchini in stir fries. Also acorn squash cut in half , drizzelled with olive oil and put cut side down on a plate in a microwave for ten minutes is so easy to do and so tasty.
