Okay, as mentioned before, we're trying the "no cooking without using something from the garden as often as possible because dear god, Cthulhu is growing in the cuke beds and I'm afraid the herb pots are plotting a coup" thing (note to self: must find some way to shorten this).

Last night was an A+ effort, with herb-crusted pan-seared chicken breasts (2 kinds of rosemary, lemon thyme, golden sage), capellini al limone (basil), and caprese salad (more basil plus homemade balsamic reduction, though alas no homegrown tomatoes yet). And Monday was a repeat of the excellent garlic-cilantro-lime marinated thighs with sweet chili sauce.

So... leftovers tonight. But all is not abandoned! Leftovers can be freshened up with a lovely salad.

Butterhead and loose leaf red lettuce, radishes, lemon cukes. The butterhead is on the bitter side, so I'm thinking goat cheese and citrus vinegrette. Also, I might top it with these:

Nom nom nom.

Oh, and to truly appreciate the creeping doom from the cucumber bed, one must view it from the deck (we hope and pray we are far enough away and high enough up from the inexorable clutches of the Old Ones but in our hearts we know there is no escape). Can you hear tiny tomatoes crying out for mercy?
