Still Hungry?

Hello again! I am thinking about posting on this blog again. Most of the things I cook lately are very simple (and don't really require recipes), but I would like to keep a better record of them, so I guess that this will be more of a collection of different combinations of ingredients from here on out (with the occasional real recipe, I'm sure). Summer makes it easy to take advantage of all the wonderful local produce available. Here are some of the things I've eaten over the last couple of months:

Tomatoes on toast with Fleur Verte goat cheese.

Blistered Padron peppers with sea salt.

(Richard made this one, but I intend to copy it.)
Tomatoes, basil, snap peas and grilled chicken in a garlic-anchovy dressing.

Sangria made with kumquats, key limes, plums, nectarines, grapefruit, and Moscato D' Asti.

Little gems lettuces with Mission figs and mint in a creme fraiche dressing.

Homemade pot pie and a spinach salad with mint, basil, fennel and strawberries with pecans and ricotta in an orange-balsamic dressing.

"The Eton Mess" (strawberries, whipped cream, and crushed meringues).

A gimlet with bergamot-basil simple syrup, lemon juice, and vodka.

Scrambled eggs with broccoli rabe and aged Danish gouda served with fruit salad and toast.

Tomato-grape salad with mint and feta.
