I am making a list, and checking it twice, what will be in my garden next spring. Basil, shallots, summer squash to name a few.
I had a wonderful dinner tonight with some boccocini I bought in Regina. It was surprisingly fresh and wonderful. Such a treat where cheese is also like gold. My friends, Greg and Jerry, overnighted with me enroute to Calgary. As I am growing to enjoy, they bring me care packages.
This trip brought me some wonderful freshly roasted Black Pearl espresso coffee beans, Morden's Russian mint chocolates (they are milk chocolate and filled with milk chocolate delicately flavoured with mint and melt in your mouth) and... ta da... a couple of fresh and tasty garden tomatoes.
I know you can think faster than I can write. Yes, I had a nice tomato salad with boccocini, basil pesto and balsamic reduction. Such a treat.
