We woke up to 54 degrees this morning. Love it! The attic fan is pulling in that free coolness through the whole house as I type. I am so ready to shut off the A/C and open all the windows.
So the head count yesterday was 30. The crowd began nibbling on yummy smoked fish dip and deviled eggs. The sideboard was FILLED with good good…marinated green beans, baked beans, cabbage casserole, marinated tomatoes, mac ‘n cheese, roasted potatoes, roasted asparagus, cole slaw, rolls, potato salad…I know I am leaving something out. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a BEFORE photo. And I didn’t get any of that roasted asparagus, since I was last in line. Bugger. Not that I needed any more food on my plate!
Our gals are great cooks…and great friends. I was too busy to take photos (bad me). I laughed at all the guys sitting out on the deck (would have been a good photo), with the gals all inside. Isn’t that the way it goes?
Dick did a great job on the smoked salmon. It was a bit time consuming---put the rub on, marinate 8 hours, take the rub off; put fillets in aluminum “boats” to dry out for 4 hours; smoke’em; remove skin. And it didn’t really taste smoked! It was very, very good. Leftovers tonight. Come on over! We always manage to feed the multitudes.
That’s it from paradise, y’all. Make your day great!
