A Major Event
It is with a full heart that I report we have just had a comment from our very favorite and sorely missed neighbor, the Major.
We met 3 years ago on a cold spring day. GG was in Connecticut visiting her father and I was bundled into an unusual assortment of clothes working in the garden. The house across the street was for sale and a man had gotten out to take a look, he asked me if I knew anything about the house. Did I? A 1/2 hour of animated chatter later I told him to buy the house. He did and returned to take possession in June. It's been that easy between us ever since.
He retired from the Marines and has been in Afghanistan for 6 months working as a contractor. We want him home and according to his comment this will happen in 55 days and a wake up call.
I think he's in it for the food, so I'm posting a few pics of dinner from the other night. A grilled chicken in a Thai marinade served with a salad and grilled tortillas ( we are very cross cultural here). I found this recipe on a post by How To Cook A Wolf. I use my Quick And Easy Thai cookbook frequently but had never tried this dish. The dipping sauce that accompanied it was sticky, sweet and spicy perfection
Now that I know he's found the blog I'm going to pepper my posts with more and more enticing dishes till we get him back home.
We love you buddy, the 925 just isn't the same. You keep looking at the food pictures and we'll keep a watch on the house and the days till you're back where you belong, with us!
