Did They Hear That?

June 30, 2012


Because they have a lot of ears!


And pounds of potatoes


We’re doing a low-country boil tonight! Shrimp and kielbasa in the fridge.

For vegetarian protein, I made a big bean salad.

A Red, White + Blue Black Bean salad!


I made the black beans from scratch yesterday and added cans of kidney and cannellini beans. Mixed up with cucumber and tomatoes and peppers from our garden


Plus about half a cup of olive oil, a quarter cup of lemon juice, garlic gold nuggets and salt/pepper


Formal recipe –> Red, White + Black Bean Salad


I was so thirsty after my walk this morning that water wasn’t cutting it. Coconut to the rescue.


Karen has moved in with us for a week or two as she is currently between rental houses! She wrapped up at her old one yesterday and her new one (downtown!) is in the process of being painted.


I made us both lunch while she shucked corn on the porch


Leftover gratin and quinoa salad (I am SO over this quinoa!)


Plus No Bull Burgers with bleu cheese and zucchini bread


And berrriiiieeeeessss! Fresh from the market.


I didn’t finish all of the bread or veggies – it was a big lunch!


Time to move the kegerater!

Love the title! I’ve been on a serious corn kick lately. I want to gobble up all those ears!

Say what?!?! The zucchini bread looks like the best part! I just couldn’t have left it behind 😉

Well I ate most!

Can I come to your party? Everything sounds delicious! Props to you for keeping us vegetarians in mind! :)


8 Averie @ Averie Cooks June 30, 2012 at 2:28 pm

perfect berries and wow that bean salad made more than a serving or two…looks perfect for a party :)


9 Katelyn Block June 30, 2012 at 3:21 pm

YUM. Can’t wait for tonight!


10 Rachel June 30, 2012 at 3:35 pm

that salad looks amazing! I’ve been looking for a good bean salad :)


11 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats June 30, 2012 at 4:17 pm

that gratin STILL looks delicious! Haha and I love your title, very clever.

I’m surprised to see all those corn husks in the rubbish. I’d have thought you and Matt would have a fab compost heap so you could recycle all those nutrients back into your vegie garden’s soil!


13 KathEats June 30, 2012 at 5:01 pm

We actually moved them to the compost – Karen didn’t realize we had one in the back!


14 Amy Wiginton June 30, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Kath, whats the deal with Coconut water? I seem to be hearing a lot about it but I am not sure I get what the hype is all about? Please explain when you have time….party looks like a blast. I hope its cooler there. Its 95′ in Chicago.

Great for hydration + electrolytes!

Love a Lemon Vinaigrette…your bean salad sounds delish! Oh how I cannot wait for fresh corn…that would be August in our neck of the woods! Lucky you!


17 Cait's Plate June 30, 2012 at 6:16 pm

That zucchini bread just looks better and better!


18 Greenearth June 30, 2012 at 6:37 pm

What wonderful food.


19 Angel7 June 30, 2012 at 7:07 pm

When I was younger, I used to shave the corn off the cob, because I did not like corn stuck in my teeth–and still do not. But over time, I have eaten it on the cob.

We had a shrimp boil too tonight. It was yummy. Fresh corn is the best. And tonight it was super good. I hope you have a delightful dinner too.


21 Laura June 30, 2012 at 7:27 pm

And possibly lots of eyes in the potatoes? 😉

It’s nice that you have Karen staying with you. She seems awesome.

23 Gina @HealthLoveandChocolate June 30, 2012 at 8:36 pm

The berries look great! I just pick up a bunch at the farmer’s market as well.


24 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count July 1, 2012 at 5:20 am

Thanks for the salad recipe!


25 Brianna July 1, 2012 at 6:51 am

Danggg that is a whole lot of corn! Sounds like you’ll be having quite the gathering :)
