Dinner on the Table! What’s For Supper #96! Each week I share what we are having for supper at Momma’s house. I whip up some good meals with a little time and try to keep the budget-friendly and easy to cook. We love a good slow-cooked meal and some quick half-way homemade goodies. Life is busy, but we still need to get dinner on the table.
Dinner on the Table!
School is in full swing here at Momma’s house. We have an open house coming up and booster meetings galore! Dinner will get more and more simplified for Fall. Fall in California is usually an extended summer. It can get toasty hot outside.
However, the produce aisles and farmer’s market do take on Fall in a big way. This week I saw tons and tons of tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes. In colors as wonderful as black, yellow, and orange. I even saw a striped variety of sorts that would look heavenly on a platter quartered with bold drizzles of olive oil, coarse ground salt, and pepper.
These lush tomatoes also go so well cut and tossed with cooked fresh-cooked pasta or even zucchini noodles if that is your jam. Add some basil or parsley to create another layer of flavor. Watch the green of the herbs pop against the vibrant colors of the fruit.
Rogue Pumpkins and Lush Melons
I love later summer because once in a while you see a rogue pumpkin ready for roasting or even pan-fried! (It’s a Southern thing) and so many lush melons to slice and enjoy with good cheese and wine.
Supper is never boring when you visit the market, especially the local farmer’s market. It is such a treat, and really is the perfect way to greet neighbors, chat up the growers, and meet new friends

Dinner with Farmer’s Market Treasures.
This week’s dinner plans center on the farmer’s market and our weekly produce-box. They are both parts of the joy I have when cooking dinner each night.
Fresh fruits and vegetables can make a plain roast chicken sing! Add some fresh summer squash cooked down with onions to your chicken dinner this week.
The next day put some burgers on the grill and serve them with sliced fresh melon instead of French fries or better yet grill some zucchini strips and make a beautiful dipping sauce with sour cream, mayo, garlic, and fresh chopped chives.
When cooking with a produce box or a bag of fresh farmer’s market treasures it is hard to go wrong. Cooking the fresh vegetables, or serving them raw as crudites is truthfully the best thing we can do for our family. It makes supper an eating adventure!
