I love summer food
fresh vegetables and fruits
Last night we had company for dinner . . .
Friend Shirley Ann and her Husband Jack
We were going out for dinner but I had a chicken and some corn
so we invited them over
With temps in the triple digits it's too hot to eat outside
(which is one of the pleasures of summer)
And so inside we were!
In the dining room . . .
with a lace cloth, the Spode Blue Room, napkins in silver rings
And a centerpiece of garden hydrangeas!
A summer meal for sure!
(served with gravy)
Fresh Amish corn on the cob
And iron skillet fried chicken
Oh, and there were slices of garden tomatoes too!
All served family style
Chicken in the middle so everyone could help themselves to their favorite piece
While the other dishes were passed
And passed more than once!
This one is blueberry!
A favorite and easy dessert -- fruit, sugar, a bit of cornstarch to thicken, some lemon zest and a tot of brandy with a topping of brown sugar, flour and butter. All baked until the top is brown and the fruit is hot and bubbly!
Best served with cream
We chose whipped rather than ice or poured
It melted into the warm crumble.
Oh, my, was it delicious!
