WIAW- Loving my Garden!

Good morning!

Before we get to the meat (ha!) I want to remind you to enter the Gutzy Gear Giveaway.  You can enter by commenting here or over on the KRW facebook page.  Winner on Friday.

It's Wednesday so it's time to talk food!

The August them for What I Ate Wednesday is Summer Staples.
I have finally reached a point in my summer where my garden is overflowing with goodies for me!

This morning I made Ken some green eggs- sorry, no ham.  He enjoyed a jalapeno, green onions and a green bell pepper in those eggs.  Every veggie came straight from the garden.  Veggies don't come any more fresh than that!

Word to the wise- If you decide to get up early and chop a jalapeno while you're still half asleep, keep your hands away from your eyes.  I'm just sayin'.
Then I packed him yet another pretty salad for his lunch.  This one included mixed greens, cucumber, green bell pepper, tomato & a handful of mixed nuts.

Last night we grilled some surf & turf for dinner.  Filet mignon with shrimp. Yum.

The girls & I like our filet mignon seasoned with just a little garlic salt.  Ken is enjoying this Applewood Rub on all his steaks this summer.
(FYI- it's not as high in sodium as many store-bought rubs are)

Of course, we had a big salad.  
It was pretty picked over when I remembered to take a picture of it for you.

That's all for now.
What are you eating this Wednesday?
