Break In The Action
These pics are just a nod to the MLB All-Star game tonight - a theoretical "half-point" in the baseball season and 4 days off so the sports talking heads can blab non-stop. It's kind of a break in the action for us too. I am finishing up a hand quilting project this week (fingers crossed) and Polly is getting ready for her trip to Nantucket.
There is no cooking here today as it's just too darn hot. I picked up a salad at the local produce store and we'll have that and ice cream. It's a Maurice salad. Does anyone outside of the metro-Detroit area know what a Maurice salad is? The original Maurice was served in the restaurant of J. L. Hudson's department store, which is now sadly, gone. It is certainly a fond memory for us here in Michigan. The salad seemed so sophisticated and exotic at the time and now just seems like a dated mid-century meal. But, a delicious dated mid-century meal. Here is the recipe if you want to make it yourself. Sweet gherkins and sliced pimento olives......yum.
There were some good questions about quilt stencils and marking on the last post - and I'll cover some of that in the next post. Until then, keep cool.
