If You Like Pina Coladas
Clearly I left both my wits and my camera at home yesterday.
I knew I was going to dinner where both the food and friends would be pretty.
But I forgot my camera.
The day had been foggy and rainy, then sunny and humid.
So the pineapple gazpacho was an inspired choice. Recipe and picture courtesy of the Washington Post.
And if summer ever comes to your town I strongly urge you to make this soup. And don't neglect the garnish. Can there ever be enough bites of jalapenos? My eyes were watering when I garnished the soup. And internally I was drooling.
There was a pile of collard greens and ginormous grilled porkchops. Oh, and very garlicky garlic bread.
These people all work out like savages so I could almost watch their bodies burning the calories as they ate.
I don't eat much meat any more. I've been living on grains and beans and vegetables, dairy and fruit.
It appears to be a perfect diet for my body. I had a physical last week and all my numbers were good. Even my cholesterol, and that had been high the last 10 years.
So I'm going to take my healthy body outside and do a little weeding next door.
Lucy will join me.
Gus is otherwise engaged.
