Just like her mom, Bev cannot resist buying plants, even tropical ones, so when she saw this bright yellow Hibiscus, she had to bring it home.
I’ve been trying to get back to something besides my basic breakfast and here are a couple of them beginning with an open faced BLT with a good vine ripened tomato from the Mennonite market and a fried egg.
I grew up eating fried cornmeal mush and have always made my own but when I spied polenta on a recent market trip, I picked up my first tube. It tasted like what I make but it is much drier and denser – seems to be made with a fine grind of cornmeal. I fried six slices in a little bacon grease topped four of them with some chopped sausage then with a couple of fried eggs.
It made for a very tasty breakfast and I don’t know if I liked it more or less than the homemade version but it’s hard to beat the convenience.
Cindy likes to make supper and on this occasion she said she was craving a salad plate so she make egg salad, tuna salad, and chicken salad for us to eat on the dock after happy hour – we finally have the dock and boat cleaned up and open for the season.
All of her salads were very good and we sided them with some fresh local strawberries. Then for dessert, it was a slice of lemon cake topped with strawberries and ice cream. The meal was especially nice eaten on the dock with pleasant weather.
