I’m glad you came, I’m glad you came!
I am a summer person. Maybe it is because I grew up in the Fingers Lake area of New York State and summer usually only lasted one day, 4th of July!! You still had to find some jeans and a sweatshirt once the sun went down. How can you call that summer?
Now I think you could call me a Floridian since I have been here on the Gulf Coast since 1977. And I still love summer. The hotter the better!! And I love all the citrus that we have available. Even for centerpieces along with some palm fronds from the front yard.
I picked up these palm salad plates a few months ago from the clearance table at Beall’s Outlet because they just screamed FLORIDA!!
Add a few shells and it is summer!! I had seen this idea of adding the shells to the lanterns at Pottery Barn and loved it!
Don’t you just love the vibrant colors of the lemons, limes and oranges!
Chef Gar got into the spirit also and we celebrated the summer solstice in style! Crab cakes and salad…just feels like summer, don’t you think??
Dinner was outstanding. So tasty, refreshing and healthy too!
Local blue crabs with a light yogurt based sauce served over baby spring mix. And a summer salad….
But not just any salad!! Watermelon, cherry tomatoes, slivers of red onions and a few chucks of feta cheese drizzled with a light vinaigrette.
Chef Gar can COOK!! We had a wonderful evening to celebrate the arrival of summer. Hope your solstice was wonderful also!!
