The weekend wasn’t a total loss…there were some bright spots….
Ernie picked his Brandywine-tomato-as-big-as-a-head….
Owen, God help us, became infatuated with Ricky’s skateboard….
I haven’t posted much about cooking of late…I think I’ve been a tad lackluster and we mostly just toss things on the grill during the summer. Friday night we were very tired so we just had corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes from the garden with some basil oil on top and a grilled ribeye. I sauteed a couple of jalapenos, cloves of garlic and some thin sliced onion until it was all sort of brown and crispy and then poured it over the steaks…..it was pretty marvelous…just adding a bit of bite and depth of flavor to a well-cooked steak….can’t argue with that!
Oh, and the other night as I was sleepily reading to Owen (he was up way too late) he started talking about church. I know I have to get a handle on this but I just wasn’t up for it. He asked me what church was about and I gave him some muddled explanation along the lines of ‘there are lots of churches and they try to help you be a better person.’ He thought for a minute and said, "ohhhh…..I thought it was about the president that died."
So he either thinks that Jesus Christ was the president or that the Catholic Church is some kind of JFK cult…. comments anyone?
