|Friday dinner, oh amazing!|
Our weekend started with an amazing dinner on Friday evening. Tuna kabobs, cabbage salad in the Syrian style, grilled sweet corn and fresh green onions and radishes. Yum yum yum! I did the tuna in a hybrid style, Mediterranean in concept, Malayasian in flavoring and execution. Instead of skewering fresh lemon quarters with the fish i used some of the preserved lemon that i made about a month ago. Preserved lemon is amazing, and easy to make. I can not imagine not having them in the frig! Syrian style cabbage salad is hands down our favorite, it does take a little prior planning as you do need to salt the shredded cabbage for about an hour. After that you rinse the cabbage, make a dressing of lots and lots of finely minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and about 1/4tsp dried mint. Heavenly!
|Can you spot the amphibian?|
Today in lieu of a walk to the grocery store we went out to Marshy Point Nature Center and hike the Vernal Pond trail. As it's name implies it is a temporary springtime pond. With all the rain we've had lately the pond is still beautifully full. The tadpoles we saw brimming in the pond late last month are now hopping merrily about after their transformation. Frogs and toads galore out on the trail.
|UFO's on the horizon|
We both thought that the cloud formations were very odd looking, rather UFO ish!
well, sigh, it is clouding up, tropical storm Bonnie is moving in and we expect to see rain in a couple of hours. Sigh.
