We were outside eating dinner and Chris said chips ahoy, thus the title. I can fix some weird dinners. Tonight it was Bocca chicken patties with a chutney sauce along with kale chips, zucchini chips, and potato chips inspired by http://theroadtoserendipity.wordpress.com/ In my opinion the ingredients for successful chips are parchment paper, sea salt, mixed pepper, a little olive oil, and nutritional yeast. I did not use it on the potato chips as they were good alone, and that would have been overkill.
This year or at least this summer we are living a little more off the land. The kale, zucchini, and potatoes came from our garden. Our lunch of a salad consisted of lettuce and cucumbers from the garden, and the blackberry cobbler we had for dessert from yesterday’s post was made from blackberries picked on the farm. We picked a new batch today. That was going well until the tractor (we were also working on the trails as we went along) disturbed a yellow jacket nest. I was stung only once luckily. It still hurts. Most fortunately Chris wasn’t stung at all. He is highly allergic. While out picking, though, a new idea for the farm came, “Blackberry Fields Forever.”
The peaches are small, but it is the first batch ever from our peach tree. Earlier we had some blueberries from a very small bush that we have. The birds kept getting the later yields.

Jerri the food looks wonderful. Great pic too.
Thanks so much!
Your potato chips look delicious and at least you got Chris to leave yours alone long enough to take a photo ;). I love reading about other people’s harvests and how clever they are at using them. You are certainly cooking up a delectable storm with your harvest :).
Chris is usually the one taking the pictures.
Your meal looks delicious, I tend to grab whatever is on hand now that I prepare meals only for myself, I need to start preparing more foods ( I tend to just eat the whole food raw) so I don’t drool over pictures of beautiful simple meals. I am looking forward to our peaches coming in so enjoy yours for me.
I tend to do the easy thing myself, but rather than grabbing raw I go for chips or something….even though they may be organic, veggies would be much better. Chris inspires me to cook. On the days that I take the time to prepare a really good lunch for myself I feel really good about life. I do love sprouts, and I’m in the process of sprouting right now….had some yesterday on my Bocca chicken patty (fake chicken).
