The Perfect Savory Summer Treat!

Hello everyone!  We invite all our friends and neighbors to come down to the next yummy Pathfinder Produce, set for the Village Commons on Thursday, July 27, from 1 to 5 p.m.  We’re just bursting with healthy, crunchy, fresh veggies and fruits!  Plus, our produce from our very own Pathfinder Hoop Houses is now being harvested by members of our Adult Day Services … it’s simply delicious!!

Our Summer Concert Series is still in full swing for another month … come down to the Pathfinder Pavilion this coming Saturday evening, July 29, at
7 p.m., to enjoy the sounds of hammered dulcimer virtuoso Dan Duggan, along with guitarist Peggy Lynn, who will present songs inspired by New York's North Country and other folk tunes. 

The Summer Concert Series is made possible with public funds from the Chenango Arts Council’s Decentralization Grants Program, a re-grant program of the NYS Council on the Arts, with support from Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.  The series is also made possible with funds from private donors, Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Program, and WGY’s Christmas Wish.

Below, my colleague Maura Iorio offers some thoughts on yummy grilled summer meals!

Summer is in full swing, and although it seems many days have been rainy and overcast this year, it only makes us appreciate the warm sunny days even more!

One of my favorite things about summer is using the grill to make quick and simple dinners. Although hamburgers and hotdogs may be the first things that come to mind when we think of BBQs and cookouts, grilled vegetables can add some much needed color and flavor to your meal!


Any fresh veggies, in my opinion, are great on the grill, but here are some recipes to get you started:

 Grilled Fajita Vegetable Skewers
Pair these with some grilled chicken or steak for the perfect Tex-Mex dinner!

Mediterranean Grilled Zucchini Boats
Summer is usually filled with an abundance of zucchini and yellow squash! Switch it up by grilling these Mediterranean-inspired zucchini boats—perfect as a side dish or on top of a light salad!   Click here for a step-by-step tutorial!



Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
Portobello mushrooms are my favorite vegetable to grill! This recipe from Rachel Cooks is packed with flavor and easy to make! Click here for the recipe and video tutorial. 



Whatever recipe you try, grilled vegetables are guaranteed to be a delicious (and nutritious) addition to your summer meals!

Until next time, enjoy all the summer flavors!

Maura (and Lori)
