What’s Cooking This Weekend…Weekend of June 21-22, 2008

It’s the first day of summer! This makes us think of tomatoes, strawberries, watermelon and corn. The tomatoes in your backyard may not be so big as these quite yet; ours are the size of blueberries, just beginning to swell among the leaves of our patio bush.

Other than watching tomatoes grow, here are a few things we enjoyed from the last week here at The Kitchn:

• Turns out that quite a few of you went and bought this pan after we wondered why it was so popular. Guess there’s a good reason for it!

• Weekend drinking: There’s quite a lot to choose from. Frozen strawberry margaritas, updated sangria, and Vesper Lillet martinis. Hmmm – dilemma.

Blueberries, stone fruit, and yes, tomatoes are out in the California markets.

• We met Martha and Emeril! See what we asked them, plus photos of what we ate and drank.

• Any more recommendations for good everyday dishes?

• Try making a breakfast sandwich this weekend.

• And our pick for supper, soon: Chilled Pea Soup with Radish and Mango Relish.

Have a happy weekend everyone! Stop back in for some weekend reading on Saturday and Sunday.
