Farmers' Market Supper

Thanks be to the farmers and local cheesemakers and bakers, who do all the work so that I can serve up the simplest of wonderful suppers with very little effort.  Wednesday afternoon is a farmers' market day in Saratoga Springs, and today brought the first ripe home-grown tomatoes, fresh sweet corn, and perfect slender green beans of the summer season.  Add handmade fresh Mozzarella from a local Italian market, a crusty whole-wheat bread from Rock Hill Bakery, sweet basil from the garden, and abundant extra-virgin olive oil, and it's quite a feast!  Even without the cold roast chicken and a nice bottle of wine, which we happened to have on hand.  Yes indeed, it's summertime, when the feastin' is easy!

Yum Yum that's my kind of eating.
I am 70 today and I think that I will enjoy such a meal from my garden.
