I hadn't planned on writing this afternoon. But the visitor (on the right) in the garage convinced me I really rather be here in the house. Just in case there are more of him from whereever he came from.
I haven't shared yet the fabulous summer salad Gene Sasse recently whipped up for us.
Gene being a photographer, you can count on any presentation he makes being beautiful. But the taste- Wow! No need for a fancy recipe. Just think of it as a rule breaking bounty of the garden creation.
On a bed of Mixed greens, Gene layered on
chopped Tomatoes and Feta cheese, crumbled
fresh Peaches, cubed
Raisins and Dry Roasted Peanuts
When we were seated, Ranch Dressing was drizzled, the salad tossed. Then came the sign of a truly good course. At the first bites-the talkers went immediately mute. Mmm and swallows were the only sounds which breached the silence. Soon the quiet was broken by free-flowing compliments.
