Yesterday's Lunch

Yesterday I took a store bought potato, a home grown light green (Clarimore) zucchini, a bit of purple onion, a couple of garlic cloves, some home grown fresh basil and parsley and sliced and chopped to make a heap of fresh veggies:

Russet Potato, Clarimore Zucchini, Onion, Garlic, Parsley & Basil

I then sauteed them all in extra virgin olive oil with a bit more garlic powder, some freshly ground black pepper, some lemon pepper seasoning and a bit of paprika. It smelled great and looked like this while cooking:

Potato Zuke Saute

After a few minutes they all cooked tender and started to carmelize bringing out their natural sugars and great taste. I was hungry so I ate it for lunch:

How did that broiled sausage (Bockwurst) get on my plate?
(delicious with horseradish deli mustard!)

Oh Yum. You are so creative with your stir frys - I need to take lessons from you! When I first saw that top photo, I thought the zucchini was green apple - I wonder how that would have turned out. :-) My oldest son *loves* lemon pepper on everything - it's a great seasoning.
You know what I'm going to say about the bottom photo, don't you. (The bockwurst looks delicious, by the way) It looks like you've been back in that organic catnip stash again! lol :-)

Hi Danni,
You don't need cooking lessons from me, but thanks for the compliment. I use a lot of lemon pepper and also garlic in my cooking.

You crack me up. No, I wasn't high when taking the photos. Sometimes my indoor photos can be blurry. Low light levels, an inexpensive camera and my "skills" are my excuses. I am no real photographer. I just enjoy the ease of snapping photos with my little digital camera and sharing them with everyone. I usually shoot the veggie photos in natural daylight on my porch table. I prefer the natural light to the flash. The bockwurst tasted good,and I even liked the way it looked in that photo.

Now you do know that I'm just being silly, right? And all was said with a smile on my face...not mean spirited...
wanted to clarify, though, sometimes emails and comments can be misinterpreted (or poorly written). :-) hugs to you on this friday!

Hi Danni,
Yes, of course I know you were good naturedly kidding me. I have a pretty good idea of your personality by now. I like it. I kid around too. Thanks for being concerned and wanting to be clear. I always enjoy hearing from you.

Gotta be careful of lemon pepper sometimes, too much salt or sugar in the ingredients, someone told me that, maybe Jen.

The photos of the stir fry had me drooling, even that blurry one Danni is pointing out. She is so funny sometimes. That catnip posting has really received a lot of mileage.

I most definitely was accused of carrying around an illegal stash when I carried it to my car for delivery to Jen and her kitties.

Hi Bob,
I am glad you remember to check the ingredients on your lemon pepper seasoning. Some do have salt, sugar and even silicon (sand)in them. Thanks for the cooking praise. I appreciate it.

Oooh! That looks so good and would be something I'd love to eat. One of my favorite cookbooks is "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest. Your stir fry would fit perfectly in there, too :)

Hi Twinville,
Thank you for the compliments on my cooking, and for the book recommendation. I'll have to look that one up.
