A Kid Friendly Garden Fresh Meal!

 Roasted Carrots, corn, and the bruschetta  for mommy! And of course a kid favorite, hot dogs! The kids love corn, and this is the first meal I have made with my corn from the garden. It was small, but it was tasty!
For the carrots, I layed them all out on a baking sheet, drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper and baked them on 375 for 25 minutes, turn and bake another 25 minutes. I don't normally like cooked carrots, but they are super sweet and yummy like this. I may try them in the grill sometime too!

These kids just don't know what they are missing with the bruschetta! They don't like all the herbs and seasonings! Mmmmm! I used my tomatoes, red onion, garlic, and basil from the garden and a little salt and pepper! My favorite!

This boy loves his corn, he ate two!
Today, I was very excited to pick a 1.5 pound Brandywine from the garden! These are some big tomatoes, I have never grown this variety and I will definitely again. Maybe another color too! This one may get used on some tacos for dinner tonight!
Hope you are having some good garden meals this week!


  1. Good eating! :) And a pound and a half sized tomato? Holy smokes. I'd want to put it on a shelf and admire it instead of eat it, haha!

  2. Yum~~~the bruschetta look delish.
    I didn't like carrots until I started roasting them, now I would eat raw homegrown carrots but not store variety.
