I am guessing the summer has been too long and too hot when the vegetables lean back on the counter and start smirking at you...click on photo to see what I mean. Sigh. Smart aleck cucumbers. I have my grandson visiting all week, so may be to busy to blog much.
For those charming readers who asked...
Yes, I finished going through the trunk but am still reading my college letters home. That is taking more time. I did sort them (anal retentive person that I am) into chronological order so that my parents responses are correctly interspersed with my letters. My mother is very much a "Gracie Allen" when she writes. I am sure that most people other than my generation have no idea what I am talking about, but you can Google or Bing this scatterbrained character.
You asked about the dinner which was a lucky win so I didn't try Grannies potato soup. Pescatarians eat only seafood protein. So:
Cucumber salad (sour cream and mint dressing)
Striped Bass in a tangy Thai marinade
Steamed crab with basil/butter/olive oil/ lime sauce for dipping
Corn on the cob
Toasted French baguette slices with either garlic butter or tangy roasted tomatoes and basil from the garden on top.
Vanilla ice cream with heated fresh peach slices in brown sugar and butter as a topping.
Hot tea/coffee to help finish the meal.
It was a cholesterol busters meal to die for.
