( Slight rambling wrt motivation for cooking with lavender. )
There are two dishes here, the lavender-and-corn and the summer squash. They go rather well together and combine to make a light supper, although if you'd rather have a full meal, I'd suggest adding a nice toasted starch-- ideas I contemplated were: naan, lightly toasted cornbread, a very not-rich biscuit, fresh tortillas, or maybe a simple quesadilla. (Um, yeah, and I also was thinking that a bit of my father's homemade beef jerky would have gone quite well too. Which is clearly not a starch. So, um, let your tummy guide you.)QUICK DESCRIPTIONS
Time and serving sizes for making both
- Recipe 1: Corn with Lavender
- A subtle play of flavours in a refreshing summery dish. The warm and soft corn is nicely complimented by the cool and crisp lemon cucumber. It requires a little bit of time and attention during the cooking but isn't inherently difficult.
- Recipe 2: A Basic Summer Squash Sauté
- Quick, easy, tasty.

I took pictures with my phone, but it's new and I'm having a devil of a time getting it to talk to my computer. Once I get around to figuring that out, I'll update this with pictures. When I do that, I'll drop a quick note to the comm whenever that happens, because I know some people find pictures helpful.( Corn with Lavender )( A basic summer squash sauté )
