pattypan squash and broccoli (cooked in lots of olive oil and a little bit of water over high heat) with sour cream cilantro sauce and goat cheese, plus Greek yogurt with dark honey and blueberries for dessert.
artichokes, asparagus, and peas. I use frozen artichoke hearts and peas, mix them in a saucepan with lots of olive oil, thyme, a smashed garlic clove, and salt, then cook them, covered, over medium high heat, just until heated through and any liquid is cooked off. Then I take the lid off, let them cool until just warm, and fold in thinly sliced asparagus
salad of roasted chicken, arugula, and baby radishes with mustardy mayonnaise on the side. Cheese crackers provide similarly fancified crunch, and apples from the Hesser-Friend family CSA share are a perfect ending to a fall meal.
