We were just talking about the menu and selecting items we can't get elsewhere. For example, I won't be ordering the Maryland crab cakes Probably a toss-up between the whitefish and the walleye.

Yum, Nice menus!

+1. I love reading menus. Even after I order, I ask the waits to leave the menu, just so I can continue to peruse.

My cherry toms are starting to come on strong, it's a great way to use them!

Homegrown blueberries and cream for dessert, oh, and watermelon margaritas!
What's your recipe for watermelon Margaritas?

Another menu reader here. It's fun to read menus even if its places you might not ever visit. Part of enjoying Your dinner experience too.

I snared a couple good looking green peppers at the farmer's mkt this weekend. Making one into halved stuffed peppers. I think if you split them top to bottom you can pack more stuffing in than if you just remove the caps. It's a theory. It's not like I Need more food.

Also made a pot of homemade pinto beans for refried beans today. Going to freeze some of the beans. Haven't done that before. I expect they are freezeable.

And a piece of blueberry pie. Currently freezing garden picked blueberries too.

I'll post it in the Drinks section. Basically, I puree watermelon chunks (both the red and white parts, cut off the dark green skin) in the blender until liquified, with the juice of half a lime, maybe a bit of lemonade, and a bit of agave syrup, or whatever other sweetener you like. I keep it in a pitcher in the fridge. It's nice watermelon lemonade. You can also freeze it in ice cube trays. Then, just make it like a regular Marg, 3 parts tequila, 1 part orange liqueur of choice. Blend with ice, or frozen watermelon ice cubes, or not. We like ours on the rocks.
