“If More Of Us Valued Food And Cheer Above Hoarded Gold, It Would Be A Much Merrier World.”

The sentence used as my title for this post is a J.R.R. Tolkien quote. I thought I'd start using good food quotes for my titles in food related posts. All of these food items are from summer.

   Raspberry scones with raspberry tea! For a short while at the end of summer, containers of raspberries were only one dollar! I bought several and made scones out of the raspberries from one container. I used the same recipe that I used for my blackberry scones.

  Homegrown vegetables from my upstairs roommates dads garden. He also made the chocolate zucchini bread from his zucchinis. It is a treat to get homegrown veggies  Besides the bread (I'm a sucker for sweets), the green beans were my favorites!

Crab! For the most part I am a vegetarian but I sometimes cheat with seafood. I got these crabs from a man whose boat I was working on. He caught them himself. Apparently he is known around the dock as the 'crab man' because he is always catching crabs and sharing them with his neighbors. It was very sweet that he shared some with me too.
