It Really Is June
But, at the Farmer's Market to see Biggles take over the Selling of the MEAT at the Fatted Calf stall, I found ...
The seasons's first HEIRLOOM TOMATOES!
Tomato Sandwich, here I come.
Pix when my computer recognizes my camera again.
Edited to add: Here's Biggles being the Maestro of Meat:
P. S. Pretty much all the sour cherries on my tree are ripe. Now I really have to get cracking with the Shuna's Perfect Pie Crust attempt, to break in the new KitchenAid.
Pie crust...I'm terrified of pie crust, LOL, because my mother's is so good, it's a tough act to follow. The only decent one I ever made was a short crust (for a pumpkin-cream-cheese pie, no less)...it was basically Scottish shortbread, so why wouldn't it turn out well? LOL One of these days...
Black Krim are very nice!
I am on an eternal search for pie crust - the food processor way works pretty well and I have learned a couple of tricks that help my chances. Not as good as my late grandmother's - again, a tough act to follow. My problem is I usually eat myself silly during June (my birth month) and thus am cutting back on pie practice during the prime stone fruit and berry months.
how sweet of you to call it perfect. Me myself I have altered it a few times to include cornmeal and raw sugar and I must say that it is very resilient.
Because of a family emergency I will, indeed, be unable to teach my SLT classes this summer. I hope to return to teaching in the fall.
I will also hope to return in time for okra, corn, tomatoes and melons.
