It’s August, and we’re in the midst of the dog days of summer here in Sowega. Nothing is ripe and/or growing except a few tomatoes, peppers, and some herbs, but it’s about too hot for much else. So instead of our usual Farm to Table Supper, we just called an official Eating Meeting.
I didn’t make anything worth sharing a recipe for, but we did have a great time, and I even used real napkins since I hosted, which I figured was cause for both celebration and photo documentation.
I made a double batch of Honeysuckle Basil Hard Lemonade for the occasion.
I also made some sautéed lemon green beans, and Wheat baked some snapper we caught earlier this summer. Mack brought an awesome feta pepper dip with pita for dipping, and Randy and Carol brought a tasty cranberry jalapeño dip and some delicious sweet potatoes. Maggie and Greg brought summer in a bowl: spinach, watermelon and feta salad. It might not have been exactly farm-to-table, but it was a very successful eating meeting indeed.
