( modified from a recipe given to me by Gabe Jensen)
You can use whatever veggies you want, but this is what I typically use:
1 thinly sliced medium zucchini
1 thinly sliced yellow squash
1 thinly sliced small white onion
4 cloves of garlic finely diced garlic
Sautee the above vegetables in 2T of olive oil and then add 1 lb. browned and drained ground Italian sausage.
Add 1 large can of crushed tomatoes and 1 can of diced tomatoes. Add 2 T of balsamic vinegar and 2 T of sugar. Mix well, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Cream together 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy.
Sift the following:
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Stir in sifted ingredients alternating with 1/2 cup milk.
Beat until smooth. Pour into 2 quart casserole dish. Spoon 3-4 cups of cleaned marionberries over dough. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar. Pour 1 cup of juice from a can of peaches over the top. Bake @ 375 for 45-50 minutes.
Tres Leches Cake
(after we pick our strawberries we usually make strawberry shortcake that night, however this year, we have found this recipe to be our favorite to couple with our fresh pick)
1 yellow cake mix (with pudding) baked as directed in 13x9 inch pan
For topping mixture:
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pint heavy whipping cream
whipped cream, to cover cake
Poke holes in the cake with a fork all over. Pour topping mixture over cake. Let mixture absorb completely in refrigerator ( a couple of hours or more). Cover with whipped cream and serve with lightly sweetened fresh strawberries or peaches.

Well, there are a few of my favorites. On the grill we always enjoy salmon grilled on cedar planks, chicken and steak kabobs and skewer our zucchini and brush it with olive oil and seasoned salt. Oh yeah, I almost forgot my version of bruschetta:
4 diced tomatoes
finely diced half of small onion
finely diced 3 garlic cloves
hand torn into tiny pieces, a handful of fresh basil
Combine in bowl with 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
spoon onto thinly sliced baguette and then sprinkle with shredded parmesan. Bake on cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 350.
