Remember back to those Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes and Onions that I posted a few weeks ago? In that post I said that I started using the tomatoes in some dishes. This Orzo with Balsamic Tomatoes and Basil is one of the dishes that I regularly use those yummy tomatoes in. This is a great and easy lunch, or a nice side dish for dinner.

Last week I made my Smoky Black Bean Chili for dinner. It’s great because it cooks in the crock pot, leaving the kitchen nice and cool. Since it makes a big ‘ol pot of chili there were lots of leftovers that I stuck in the freezer. And, last night I made enchiladas with the chili, some more black beans, zucchini, and corn. Man, was it yummy!

Actually, to be more precise, this is a Peach, Nectarine, and Strawberry Fruit Salad with Lime Honey Basil Syrup. I first made this salad for my sister-in-law’s, baby shower, and I’ve been waiting for the stone fruit to be ripe ever since summer ended last year so that I could make it again. Here it is in all it’s pretty and colorful fresh summery-ness!
