It’s August and the dog days of summer are here. Also I have to make a decision on the winner of the July Monthly Challenge. I believe this gets harder every time. We had 78 replies to the thread. Not every one was an entry but the discussions about how to deal with gardens and garden pests were fun and entertaining.
The entries were all wonderful and all deserve credit. We had more than eight members enter many with several entering more than one time. I could have placed all the entries on the wall closed my eyes and thrown a dart and whichever was hit could have won.
There were great looking and I’m sure tasting salads, Tomatoes used many ways, okra, eggplant, fruits, and of course zucchini. Some ingredients I am not familiar with but looking forward to trying. I even looked at another thread that had a peach pie that made my mouth water.
Now the winner is one who entered with several different ingredients. The next entry would often re purpose leftovers, or planed overs at my house. Compound butters, roasted gazpacho, a watermelon keg, and the varied use of cooking methods finally made up my mind. I was also influenced by the number of likes received. Congratulations on using everything in the fridge and presenting great dishes.
