Happy 4th everyone! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

What a better way to celebrate then with Tiki 🍹 drinks πŸ˜ƒ. Tiki became popular after the Second World War. The soldiers came home from the South Pacific, and brought some of that fine culture with them. Thanks fellas, for your service, and the booze πŸ‘πŸ»

We also coked up a little surf and turf to aid the celebrations πŸŽ‰ A tender filet and swordfish… Oh, don’t forget lobster and 🌽 corn πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Enjoy the summer, and give thanks for our beautiful country πŸ¦πŸŽΆπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Summer Solstice is Here!

Indeed it has arrived, and so has our Elecampane flowers! Inula helenium is an amazing herb for so many reasons, but the main medicinal properties are for respiratory infections. In the fall the roots are dug up, and made into a tincture for this purpose. So now, we look forward to the autumn equinox, because the seasons are where the celebration is πŸŒžπŸŒ›

Grilling again!?!

You bet. The summer is just beginning 🌞 The summer solstice is tomorrow, and we want to grill outside as much as we can. So how about some grilled πŸ™ octopus 🐦🎢

Paired with a dry Riesling from the Trimbach winery. Fresh, a touch floral and perfect on a hot night.

We can’t stop there. Lou made her world famous eggplant Parmesan.

Cheers! πŸ₯‚

Natures Metamorphous

Found these little guys in the garden πŸ› eating fennel. We took them home 🏑 and let them form a chrysalis. A chrysalis is like a cocoon, but moths form a cocoon, and πŸ¦‹ butterflies form a chrysalis. Now we wait for them to emerge, and set them free in the garden πŸ™‚. If you look close, you can see the caterpillar spinning the silk to begin the transformation.

We will keep you updated. πŸ‘πŸ»

Here We Go Folks… Dinner.

A grass fed, locally raised ribeye from:

They are amazing. They butcher the meat in house and are incredibly knowledgeable.

Paired with delightfully fruity Chianti Classico. It held its own with the rich, charcoal, and smoky ribeye… love ❀️
