check out this pretty sunset from last tuesday evening...just after jambaloney got home!
here it is from the other side of the front yard....soo pretty and soo fitting as my man was finally home - woohoo!
i can't even begin to explain how happy i was to see him and i haven't let go of him since! we spent the last few days doing odd jobs around the manor and spending some quality time talking. he had a fantastic visit back home! everyone was really happy to see him, he did some fishing with his mom and step-dad and enjoyed the annual general meeting at the fishing camp very much.
here's a delicious and simple pasta with a very light sauce. the sauce is made with fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and vinegar. at the last minute i threw in a ton of fresh, home-grown oregano and some fresh chives - deelish!
and another beautiful sunset!
last evening was our community annual roast beef dinner - yummeh! it was a huge success and we made some money for our community centre. we had roughly 96 guests but a third of those were our friend H's family members - he's having a family reunion and brought all of his family out here for a party tonight. H and his wife S don't live here full-time, but they are planning to move here soon. we are looking forward to them moving here as they are very good people!
jambaloney and i served and cleared tables and then helped clean up afterwards. jambaloney is a king when it comes to serving and clearing. he can serve 5 times as many tables as anyone else and nobody can clear tables, nor run up and down the stairs as fast or as many times. he makes me very proud at these events. and if he didn't bust down tables and re-set the hall afterwards as fast as he does - we'd all still be there!!!
how about some fresh peas, fresh mint and my first italian sweet pepper - woohoo! we are going to be swimming in peppers this year! with some fresh mint tea.
i pulled my first garlic the other day and look at that baby! fresh-grown garlic is soooo much tastier than dried. we will eat fresh for the rest of the summer, dry whatever is left and then try to grow some more in the greenhouse in the fall. we love garlic!
and some cold pasta salad with carrot, broccoli, peas and fresh mint. with lime/chili dressing.
well that's my update for now. tonight we are going to our friend H's family reunion party at our community centre. it will be nice to meet up with all of our friends and party. hope all of you are well.
