The spinach was sauteed in a little water and olive oil, plated and sprinkled with roasted pine nuts and slivers of sauteed garlic. Tomatoes are unbelievable tasty right now. I made a tart with a fresh basil, egg, ricotta & mozzarella filling topped with sliced tomatoes. I love this because you can make it earlier in the day and serve at room temperature. Lemon Basil Sorbet, my new favorite summer dessert, especially when I have an abundance of basil in the garden. It is so refreshing and what a great combination of flavors.
In San Miguel de Allende, I have a lemon tree happily producing fruit on my mirador (roof top patio). This is a special treat to have because lemons are not available in the markets and I love lemons. Now I have lemons on hand so I can make this sorbet down at my casa south of the border.
As Abigal Trillin, age four, said after eating chocolate ice-cream, from "Alice, Let's Eat", "MY TONGUE IS SMILING!"
Buen Provecho Amigos!
