I had a "dab" of ham cubes in the freezer and some tiny asparagus from the garden that needed to be used up so I went to my friend Epicurious and found this. I did have to do some tweaking because I didn't have any celery, so I subbed celery seed. Otherwise, everything was pretty close to the recipe. Wow! Even with my alterations it was fantastic. Can't wait to try it with the "real" ingredients.

We had a platter of fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden, too, and iced tea to drink. We finished the last of the blackberry cobbler for dessert.

Changed my mind--made beef and smoked oysters in black bean sauce, used Swiss Chard to make the wraps. This was one of my go-to dishes when I was a lot younger. Hadn't made it for awhile...really tasty with the garden fresh peas and chard.

Grilled chicken breast seasoned with a proprietary blend of herbs and spices. Grilled baby zucchini halves. Served with steamed barley.

We just tossed together a beef and mushroom gravy dish served over mashed taters. I had a kitchen cart to assemble, so dinner was kinda an after thought, but it was good.
If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

Have nice evening.
Margi, I am so pleased you enjoyed the dish

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
