Life Is Short ( Show Dessert First)
Early Tuesday evening. Busy day at work and I should be putting dinner together.
But I wanted to post a few photos from our farewell to summer dinner on Sunday.
We did a shrimp boil again, but this time we cooked the full monty: new potatoes, sausage from the farmers market, chunks of onion and bell peppers, white corn and pounds and pounds of shrimp. Tini brought one of her beautifully composed salads, bread from a Mexican bakery in Maryland and her new beau, Nirmal. He brought a great sense of humor, an eagerness to do dishes and a mocha cake, with the faintest hint of cinnamon from the same bakery. Nirmal is very popular in our house.
We also welcomed the French Lieutenant"s Woman, or the Major's partner, whatever you prefer. Annika moved here from California this weekend. It's gotta be love to leave that climate for Virginia. Now we all await the Major's return together.
So welcome to the new faces and love to absent friends and hoping you all had a fabulous weekend.
P.S. In case you didn't read my former shrimp boil post ( the lesser monty) paper towels, not napkins are a tradition, as is a newspaper tablecloth. We are not savages, just traditionalists.
