Cook Challenge: Fruits Of Your Labors

Time again for yet another amazing Cook Challenge.  (What you don't think they are amazing?  You think they are beyond amazing?!  You are too kind.)  This challenge parallels the wonderful world of gardening.  This year was my first experience with a garden, and my cup runneth over.  No really, my fridge is full of zucchini, cucumbers, green onions, and both large and cherry tomatoes. Still waitin' on my corn - wish they would hurry up and pollinate each other so I could have me some fresh corn ears!  And my string beans and snow peas have seen better days....  Regardless of the state of my humble garden, this green-thumb-in-training has been inspired again.  Here's your challenge:

How Do You Reap the Fruits of Your Labors?
Make 3 dishes that include at least one of your garden's growth.
Don't have a garden? It's okay.  We won't tell if you buy yours at Smiths.

Ready?  Set?  Cook!

Cool. I don't have a garden, but I do have a Bountiful Basket. I never know what I'm going to get and it's fun to experiment. Good challenge idea Gina!
