Weekend at Daughter's House

We arrived at my daughter's in the rain. 
Couldn't resist this shot as she gathered fresh basil from her garden.

 Her menu: Grilled salmon,  Garden peas and Corn Succotash and fresh peaches and tomatoes from the farmers market.
 SIL grilled the corn for the succotash and salmon on his green egg and thankfully the rain stopped just in time.
 Several varieties of tomatoes and juicy peaches were delicious.

 Amy enjoys cooking and doesn't mind going to extra trouble. She is adding  fresh basil that was so fragrant to the succotash in this pic.

My plate ready to go to the table.
 Flowers from the Farmers Market, too. Oh, I wish our farmers market would carry summer flowers.
Her garden basil was unusually fragrant. I love the smell of basil and taste too.

 Granddaughter playing dress-up.

Great frittata and fruit for breakfast the next morning.

 Succulent spare ribs for dinner were cooked on the green egg by our son-in-law.
 Delicious salad
 Eggplant casserole
My plate with the addition of spicy peaches. YUMMY! We eat very well when we visit. Stay tuned for pictures of her new garden in my next post.

  17. If my kids fed me like this when visiting, I would NEVER leave!!! Maybe that's why they just toss a bag of stale Fritos and a flat soda in a corner and tell me to "dig in!" ;-) The food is beautiful, and so is your daughter. I'm glad you had a good time!

  18. Wow, you really were wined and dined! All the food sounds so good and perfect summer dishes, I can tell your daughter and son in law love to cook! Grilling the corn for the succotash, yum! We have a Big Green Egg and the grilled food is always delicious~ I can't wait until my granddaughter can play dress up, how much fun! Love the umbrella too!

  19. Hi Dear Bonnie,

    Your daughter is such a cutie, and so is your granddaughter!! Amy definitely looks like a wonderful cook -- all this food looks delicious! There is nothing much better in life than fresh food right off the grill or stove. One of the true joys of summertime. I know you must really enjoy these special visits with your daughter and her family.

    Thank you so much for your recent visit and kind words and prayers for my father. I just spoke with my mom, and he seems to be improving. I can't access my e-mail at the moment, so I really hope you see this comment. :) Have a lovely weekend!
