We are just home from Michigan, visiting the gentleman's family for the Memorial Day holiday. We cooked and grilled, and ate quite a feast ~ a real celebration with friends! And lest we forget why we remember this day, there was a home town parade complete with tractors and vintage cars decked out in their patriotic best.
The vegetable garden was just beginning to stir, but there were irises and coral bells in bloom, and fragrant chives. We came home with armfuls of peonies and fresh rhubarb ~ little reminders of those long summer days in western Michigan.
Three delicious bits of seasonal bounty:
* Keiko Oikawa (thanks to Emile for this link!)
* green gazpacho
* and Donna Hay's Seasons!
And tomorrow. . . a peek inside the old house in Michigan!
I hope you all had a good weekend.
