    Re: What did you have for dinner? -Part dois

    I'm making coho salmon croquettes, to be accompanied by home made rotini in a sweet red pepper gravy, with mushrooms and broccoli florets. A large green salad with olive halves, onion, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices and raw snap peas, with a garlicky yogurt and mint dressing. Home baked baguettes and olive oil for dipping. A fresh made iced fruit punch from Syrah grapes from eastern Long Island, lemons, black berries, fresh cherries and the last of our apple cider. Dark Lindt chocolate pudding and almond tortes for dessert with iced teas.

    The Long Island vineyards are already heavy with fruit thanks to the relatively mild winter. Far more than can be used for winemaking, and they are quickly showing up for table use in local produces stores for as low as 99 per lb. Yesterday I picked up 5lbs of Syrah, 5lbs of Muscat and 5lbs of Chardonnay grapes. The Chardonnay disappeared within an hour of my arrival before dinner yesterday. Big, fat, crisp and honey like. I would have bought more but my back pack was overflowing, and Dog's pack was filled with early Eastern peaches. A mere six block walk from home, and I was stuffing my face with two ripe peaches before I got home. I will go back tomorrow afternoon for more of everything. They also had some lovely red plums and huge tangy red and purple fleshed mangos from India. The latter superb when quickly roasted with fish, to be served over rice with peppers.
    What kind of a man is a man who has not left this world a better place?

    No one is in control.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
    Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.
