As always, the sun comes out up here and sitting at the computer turns into something you used to do when you couldn’t play outside. Here are a few pictures to prove that I’m not just slacking . . .
This delicious salad is simply sautéed shrimp over avocado quarters which is then covered with a fresh mango relish. The relish has diced mango, red pepper, jalapeno, sweet Vidalia onion and cilantro gently stirred with a drizzle of olive oil and lime. It incorporates the three F’s of summer food - fresh, fast and fabulous!
Another easy salad we’ve enjoyed is made with cold salmon chunks on a bed of freshly picked arugula, avocado and cucumbers and then drizzled with a fruity vinaigrette.
Summer is breathtaking up here, wondrous things start popping out of the ground and incredible wildlife appears in our backyard. It’s nothing to see a Bald Eagle or an Osprey with a talon-clenched fish fly over your house or your car on the way to work. Two of my neighbors have had black bears in their yard! I believe pictures say it better than I can, so I’m adding a little slide show.
Happy Summer everybody. I’ll try not to stay away, but I can’t make any promises. (I’m still reading your blogs, though, so I’m keeping up)
