Dinnner from the earth......

One Saturday morning Randy went fishing a couple weeks ago (actually he goes ALL the time - this is his new midlife crisis :-), and came home with some Sockeye Salmon.

So, that evening Dan and Marla came for dinner and we had salmon and goods from the garden....................................
Cream Red Potatoes and Peas (My mom made this when I was growing up - YUM)
I absolutely LOVE beets - Randy doesn't at ALL
A table completed with flowers from the garden
It was a beautiful evening for sitting on the back porch.  We sat and enjoyed the food, the company and the evening.  I even tried 3 new recipes for the evening. We started with a roasted red pepper artichoke dip - it was very good!  Then I had made a cheddar bread cooked in a casserole - definitely a keeper!  For dessert I made a lemon pudding cake - awesome!  All 3 recipes were from one of my favorite blogs - Mennonite Girls Can Cook.  It's listed on my sidebar so check it out!! I love their recipes and haven't had a bad one yet!!  I LOVE trying new recipes, and having friends over to try them out!!

Isn't it satisfying to have all that bounty??? We had that dinner last Monday!! Fresh salmon from Brian's trip, corn on the cob, cucumber, bean, onion and tomato salad, pasta with fresh toms and basil....I'm drooling!!!
I am ready, however, for it to be DONE!!!!
My garden is ugly, messy and downright painful to look at, but everything still tastes great!!! what to do???
