    I just planted some blackberry bushes in the spring. I'm sure it will take a few years to get a good harvest but I can't wait to make some blackberry jam! We just started experimenting with canning so I want to try all sorts of things.

    NY - my sister says she is going to try and make wine from their blackberries (upstate NY).

    We were out of almost everything and too lazy to go get dinner. So, I had frozen butterfly shrimp in the freezer, as well as stuffed scallops. I made rice and a veggie and it was all very good, to my surprise.

    A few of us mentioned making zucchini noodles. I have been making them on Sundays with my homemade tomato sauce and meatballs. We try to eat low carb as much as possible so we have been making this instead of pasta which we used to have at least twice a week!

    Have fun. My county fair is all next month (Sept), so I'll be going 2 or 3 times for sure! There's a great pizza vendor there that actually brings a big pizza oven! Mmmm! Last year, the popular thing in food used to be lobster mac & cheese.

    STILL trying to use up all the tomatoes in my garden. I have one pot of sauce in the freezer and another on the stove as we speak. Going to make some more zucchini noodles and meatballs to go with the sauce. I also have enough tomatoes to make 2 more batches of sauce but I'll probably freeze those too since I'm really getting tired of tomatoes LOL

    We all have different dietary preferences so it's always a bit of a mash up melange, but always delicious!

    Shrimp pesto pasta! I have a choice of pastas I could use: Farfalloni, Spugnole, shells, or Paccheri (probably not the last). I also have a choice of pestos to use: Sundried tomato, habanero, or regular pesto perfecto. :)

    I would like to try all of your pestos, Ms. I!! We don't eat pasta but that sounds really good.
    I'm making garlic and herb boneless pork chops (i hate meat with bones). It's one of the freezer meals I have so all I have to do is defrost it and throw it in the oven. I have some broccolini to go with it.

    TeacherNY, yours sounds good too! These aren't pestos made from scratch this time, but they're the next best thing: From the huge FM (farmer's market) that I like going to! These need to be refrigerated.

    I might be going to the Food and Wine fest in a few weeks and I think they will be selling different types of pesto. I'll see if I can find an interesting one.
