I was rereading some of my past posts and found that I have been deceiving my dear readers. I have, on more than one occasion, indicated that I would post recipes and/or photos of food we have made but not posted. What? Am I just trying to get you to read my newer posts, hungering for that recipe I said I would post but didn’t? Nope. Don’t you even think it. I just plumb forgot.
Well, another couple of weeks have gone by and where was I? Oh yes! I was snowed in with a friend of mine for a couple of days, so no pics of Yes!Chef! making tasty things last week.
Every year a group of 7 ladies that I have known for years visit me at my cabin in Tahoe for a weekend retreat. We have been doing this for the last 9 years. Last year they came in the beginning of October. Some years they have visited in July or August. This year, they waited until almost the last weekend in October. The weather in Tahoe is always iffy in October and true to form, the first few days were balmy and beautiful. It chilled down in the evening, but daytime was wonderful.
So, I was at the Farmers Market the other day, where I could probably hang out everyday if it was possible, and I saw some great things: fruit, artichoke flowers, colorful purses, Z-pies (frozen little pot pies), cheeses, breads and–Green Tomatoes!
I do love Farmers Markets and I do love Fried Green Tomatoes. I also purchased some Buffalo Mozzarella from Dedrick’s Cheese (a little cheese shop based in Placerville.)
It had been a long day of work-outside-in-the-yard for Y!C! on Saturday. We ordered some useful-yet-decorative cement blocks for the yard, so Y!C! and my youngest son hauled those around to make our yard look a bit more tidy.
Memorial Day! A day to remember and thank God for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect my freedom. A day to celebrate. My dad and my grandfathers and my husband’s father all served in the armed services. Thankfully, none of them gave their lives, although my grandfather’s ship was hit by a Kamikaze plane and many men died. They served and were proud of their service. They have all passed away now and I remember them and their bravery on this day.
