in the summertime?
it's hot here, in salmon arm, b.c.
day after day, hot and sunny - lovely weather really but oh so hot in the kitchen...
tonight we feasted on fresh corn, potatoes, asparagus and yellow beans
that's it, that's all
and it was oh so good
fresh raspberries for dessert
it was the kind of meal we used to have when visiting marc's family in ontario in august
those hot, sultry ontario days... dinner was simple, corn and fresh homemade bread
sometimes granny's potato salad - sometimes not
often just the corn and the bread
when i was a child visiting my own grandparents in prince george, summer dinners were swiss chard, new potatoes and barbecued pork-chops, my grandmother and i picking the swiss chard just around 5:00 p.m.
with stewed raspberries and vanilla ice cream for after
always, always... always, and i thought, forever
last week i picked my own raspberries
for the very first time
and played with photographing them
fiddling with a piece of white poster-board, trying to get the right look
i swear i could have painted them faster
i love the irregularity of summer meals, the freedom
the ease and simpleness of it
letting one thing shine...
