I have not blogged for a week now. So busy have I been.
Today will be a laid back day for hubby and I both.
He brought back a sack full of Rainbow trout and Kokane from his little fishing adventure at Odell Lake. So those are now soaking in a brine to be put in the smoker when he returns home.
So hubby took his fishing trip when I had my friend from Bend come for a visit. So it all worked out perfectly.
My friend and I spent the fist day and evening at home. Just as I had hoped for. I fixed some snacks and we sipped cold Chardonnay. The reminiscing and chatter went non- stop.
We spent time outdoors also under a cloudy sky however it was humid and warm. Later I fixed the pasta dinner and pear walnut salad.
More wine and then desert. Then we departed to the patio once more. I lit the candles on the patio table and we stayed until midnight with the solar lights beaming and the chatter still going strong.It was good visit as we only see one another once a year so there is always much to catch on.
Tonight for dinner we are bbq'ing chicken legs and thighs. Hubby will babysit the grill as he likes to sop that Carolina bbq sauce on the chicken so it must ne turned repeatedly so it does not burn. We will also grill corn on the cob with honey butter and hot sauce(a good combo). I am also going to make a modified german style potato salad to go with. So it will be quite feast. I wish we could have dinner at that country table of my daughters loaded with votive candles perhaps an ice bucket holding a crisp champagne in that homey array of wildflowers. I can see it my minds eye.
Well I am going to finish this post and enjoy this wonderful day. Hubby just turned on the air conditioner as it is muggy. I have my flower pots under the shelter of a patio umbrella to stave off their wilting. I see a shady spot on the deck that is calling to me and my book of course. So off I go.
