Read monthly diaries from folks across the country from all walks of outdoor and country life.
I was going to write a diary entry yesterday, but all I did was stay home and watch the Olympics because outside we were having torrential rains almost the entire day. Unfortunately, today is quite muggy (July in Connecticut has many humid days). At present, we're at 80% humidity and though it isn't very hot out, that level of moisture in the air can make even the most leisurely walk less than fun. However, I do have something to share today--my breakfast.
I don't eat many eggs during the week. I'm usually running out the door with a yogurt in hand that I'll later eat at my desk. On the weekends, I try for a more substantial breakfast. Today I opted for scrambled eggs and, as I was beating them, I noticed the cubanelle peppers we've harvested from the garden. I diced up half a pepper and a San Marzano tomato (also from our garden) and folded them into my scrambled eggs for a delicious way to enjoy fresh, home-grown vegetables.
