We were invited over for a straight-from-the-garden dinner party a couple weeks ago. Jim and Arnold are wonderful hosts, and they made this a fun, interactive party. Everyone contributed by marching out into the garden, picking vegetables and turning them into one of the many dishes we ate that night. We even made homemade butter and queso fresco as we sipped on our beers and chatted the afternoon and evening away.
Anson couldn't make it, so I took plenty of pictures to show him...
|This photo hardly does justice to the depth of the garden which is overflowing with herbs, squash, carrots, beets, tomatoes, chard and more. It's amazing to wade through the plants.|
|Neighbor Bill brought over plums from his tree as an appetizer.|
|Shake Shake Shake, Shake Shake Shake, Shake that Butter.|
|Et voilà, cream becomes butter.|
|The butter beauty shot.|
|Could this qualify as a cornucopia?|
|More payload from our garden harvest.|
|Arnold is the proud father of two baby...carrots.|
|A delicious dinner just steps from the garden it came from. These are the kinds of days that summer was meant for. Thanks for the great time guys!|
