Late Summer Harvest

I’ve been spending some time with my family in my hometown in Calabria, a region in Southern Italy. A few weeks ago I went with my brother to pick some veggies from the family garden near our house. Although it was October, it was warm so we still had zucchini, eggplants, peppers, chili peppers, watermelons too!!

I used the veggies to make a quinoa salad. It was such a delicious and nutritious dish! I’ll post the recipe soon.

Growing your vegetables really connects you with the earth and your roots, and makes you appreciate better what you eat.
