So, apparently I only post when I am not working regularly. But anyway, we had a great celebratory meal for Father’s Day/my mother’s birthday.
We had grilled lamb,
A special salad, which came from this recipe, but we made it with lime juice and home-grown lettuce instead of the more flavorful arugula, because that is what we had.
And it all came together with a (slightly burnt) specialty of mine: grilled garlic bread.
Dessert was rather fancy looking, even if it was very simple.
Miniature strawberry shortcakes and coffee.
And, naturally, here is your gratuitous close up.
For dinner tonight we had a Maryland classic: crab cakes, with some pasta salad and Italian tomatoes.
And of course, a gratuitous close-up.
There is nothing quite so quintessentially summer as BLTs with corn on the cob.
Our BLTs tend to have a little more than just bacon, lettuce and tomato, but those are still the key ingredients.
And now for a gratuitous close up of the tomatoes, which my grandmother prepared Italian style.
So yeah, I don’t know if any of you are still reading, but I am unsuspending this blog. I found some time and some photos, so here we go.
A little while back I made a really nice little meal.
Scrambled eggs with chicken and some sourdough bread, served with hot sauce.
And here is a gratuitous close up.
Next up… spaghetti on Sunday.
So, a little earlier in the week, I made my first proper meal. Rice with veggies. Okay, so it was vegetarian. I didn’t really feel it needed meat, it was very tasty. Some fresh iced tea went well with it.
Just leftover rice-aroni and some fried peppers, zucchini, and onions, with some cheese.
On Thursday, we put together a special dinner for my mother’s birthday.
The primo was Campanelle al Limone, which turned out to be really easy to make.
For the main course, I made Pollo al Vino Bianco and some fried vegetables.
For dessert, my sister made Strawberry Shortcake, the real way. It was delicious.
Here is a better picture of a pretty cappuccino.
and a gratuitous close-up, naturally.
