TOMATO CORN STEW
Lucky’s Market kept those vine-ripened tomatoes on sale longer than I expected. Of course we took advantage and stocked up once again. It’s been tomatoes with everything in our house – and it’s not even summer yet. When they’re sweet and juicy there’s no need to cook with them, but I did anyway – just because I felt like it. Today we’re combining fresh with canned. Why not? There’s no law against it. Well…not yet!

SWEET CORN AND TOMATO SAUTE
Fresh corn must be in season somewhere in the world, because it’s on sale at Lucky’s Market 2$/5 shucked ears or 1$/5 unshucked ears. Vine-ripened tomatoes were 88 cents/lb. So of course we were all in!
Serves 3 main dish or 6 sides

FRIED VEGGIE RICE
Hey, the Chinese don’t tell me how to cook in my own home. They fry the rice; I fry the veggies and season the water the rice gets cooked in. It reduces calories and minimizes a big mess in the frying pan. I don’t care if it’s not the way the Asians make it. They never experiment with anything new. It’s always the same for thousands of years. More. Maybe they’ll like this new way too!

BROCCOLI RED FRIED RICE AND QUINOA
Ever taste juicy fried grains? This is it! What a chew! Reduced fat too! Less than one teaspoon fat per one cup serving!
Steve’s on a fried rice kick, so thought I’d rearrange the foundation of fried rice by using quinoa plus red rice which functions as the meat. Success! He added a fresh ginger stick topper and smoky ketchup! Yup! His way!

ASIAN BARBECUE BEAN SOUP
Can a barbecue bean soup really be Asian? Tastes like Asian to me. Maybe it’s the sesame oil. Maybe it’s the fresh garlic and ginger. Maybe it’s the barbecue in the beans. Maybe it’s all the ingredients combined. Steve picked out the ingredients and I made the soup per his request. He ate a quart of it over toasted bagel croutons. Guess he liked it. I loved it. I had the last cup this morning for breakfast. That’s when I knew why he ate so much. I would have done the same if there had been more!
