Yes, the craziness. Loss of power. A Weekend trying to stay cool. Did we do it? Yes, mostly.
Tonight we grilled. Since the downstairs AC is down, we didn’t want to heat up the kitchen. I went to Jenny’s market this morning, and found them moved up the road since their tents were ruined with trees falling Friday night. They are still upbeat and have lots of good things to eat.
I had a pound of Black Angus beef taken out Friday to grill Saturday for friends. That didn’t happen after the storm, so we used it tonight.
The beef was formed around some Wegmans pepper jack cheese, and seasoned with salt and pepper. The beef is local, from this winter’s CSA. The cheese isn’t.
Tomatoes from southern MD. Onions local, too. Corn probably from VA. Not our good sweet corn, but not bad.
Salad made from CSA beets, greens and a pear from Harbin Farms farm stand. Beer and wine both local. He wanted beer. I wanted wine.
I added one of my frozen strawberry purees to my wine glass, making a sangria.
Honestly, what is better than a low carb meal, no bun, with fresh onions, tomatoes and cheese stuffed burgers?
Oh, I forgot. Grilled corn with seasoned butter.
