Monday Nat and I took a run to Livingston to pick up his new glasses. Due to a doctor office snafu we will be returning to Livingston Wednesday to pick up the other pair of glasses!
The last couple years I've given up on gardening as our growing season just seems so short--by the time anything is ready for picking it's time for frost. But this year I seem to have the bug again--in a small way. When we built this house we started a small garden and it still contains some things such as chives--that's the garden we are planting--the small one and only with limited plants! The cowboy and his mini-excavator moved some compost into the garden and I used our little Mantis tiller to get the soil ready--since then we've had just enough rain to keep me from doing anything else.
Tonight I went to Big Timber for a "Cooking With Herbs" class given at the greenhouse owned by our friends Kelli and her daughter Bonnie--oh, MY!!! Kelli's good friend Linda was our chef for the evening and she can cook! Our first course had us sampling Garden Fresh White Sangria which had a hint of jalapeno accompanied by Crisp Rosemary Flatbread and Green Herb Dip with fresh veggies. The main course was Zucchini Noodles with Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes and Cream. Reed, my friend Jeane's son was sitting beside me and agreed--the cowboy is NOT going to eat zucchini noodles--but I bet he would love the sauce! And the Italian Herb Baked Meatballs would also be a cowboy hit!
Dessert was just absolutely awesome--Lemon Basil Blueberry Swirl Pound Cake! I could have eaten the whole dang cake!!
Storms are coming--I think there is a full moon tonight but with the storm clouds brewing I don't thing we will be seeing that moon!
