Summer dinner

It is that time of the year when I'm beginning to plant the next vegetables that we'll be eating in a few months time.  It is also the time of the year when dinner is planned in the garden, basket and clippers in hand...
 ... all of this came from the garden,  though the onions and garlic were picked several weeks ago, and are stored in the cupboard.  Here is also eggplant, capsicum, tomatoes, zucchini, and plenty of herbs.
I cut them all up, and added them to a a pan with hot olive oil....
 ... and once it ooked down a bit,  I added all of hte herbs....
 ... and salt and pepper.  My old pepper mill is getting worn....
 ... the blcak paint has worn off after about 25 years!  It's a favourite though, as it is "made on the third planet from the sun" and really makes one think about one's significance in the scheme of things, even while cooking dinner!

Once cooked and poured over pasta and sprinkled with cheese, it made a pretty good dinner...
.... and very quite "fresh and local".
