Nature's Bounty

After playing golf on Sunday, my husband and I went to a local produce stand and got a few things for dinner.  I had thawed out some ground chuck for hamburger steaks on the grill.  The weather is pretty hot around here so we wanted to keep it relatively light.

These are candied onions.  They are a sweet onion like a Vidalia.  My husband said it was the best onion he'd ever eaten.  I don't eat raw onions so I'll have to take his word for it.

We also bought some hydroponic tomatoes.  They aren't quite as good as field tomatoes, but pretty tasty.  The field tomatoes aren't in yet.  Last year due to an extreme drought in our area, we weren't able to buy any.   I made a tomato salad using what I had at home.

I used the tomatoes, candied onions, provel cheese, blue cheese, salt, pepper,  and drizzled on some extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar my husband brought back from his trip to Italy.  It is sweet enough to eat on ice cream!

We also had fresh corn-on-the -cob.  It was crunchy, tender, and perfect!

And for the hamburger steaks:  ground chuck, candied onions, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

A tasty summertime meal!
