Sunday dinner. Sitting down and bringing the weekend to a close is such a nice tradition. Girding up for the week to come, yet still enjoying the last parts of rest and relaxation. We had roast chicken with potatoes, yams, carrots, onion and garlic. Fantabulous. A good use of celery seeds, not a seasoning I am familiar with but definitely on the mark tonight. The wife just mentioned that it is almost time to turn on the furnace again. Summer has drawn to a close. Sigh.
The salad is a perfect metaphor for the fullness of summer. The tomatoes and cucumbers are both drawing to a close, but what a spectacular close it is. Even the lovely organics I got for my salsa cannot compare to the varieties and flavours that we have in the backyard. Pulled in some more peppers and zucchini as well but that will have to wait for tomorrow night.
