3 summer goals started this weekend!
I finished book 1: The Help. Excellent read. I’d give it a 9.5/10
Recipe of the week: Beef-Tenderloin-with-Roasted-Shallots-Bacon-and-Port
My sister-in-law from Boston selected the recipe. We got the tenderloin at Costco. Extremely tasty! Our guests rated it 10/10. The only improvement would be to not use watercress. It seemed clunky, and the taste did not enhance the tenderloin. I would definitely make this again for a special occasion. Oh, we also substituted flour for rice flour to accommodate the gluten-intolerants in our group. We served it with roasted baby potatoes, green beans and salad. Brownies for dessert. Oh my!
And, today we enjoyed the perfect beach day at Hendry’s beach. The planets aligned for the ideal seaside experience…parking spot!; dolphins performing like they were auditioning for Seaworld; children playing together happily; moms catching up without interruption; no flies; no fog; not too hot/not too cold; carb filled lunch (sandwiches and CHIPS!)…
Still to tackle: the garden, mosaics, geocaching…
I hope your long weekend was as successful and enjoyable! Let’s hear all about it!
