The meal and companionship was fantastic, the children played their hearts out, and they were kind enough to fix the man a plate for me to bring home. Sunday morning we had the sausage and shrimp in eggs with zucchini salsa and there was enough left for tonight to make a creamed sherry sauce with the shrimp and sausage and then mushrooms and onions, garlic, squash and greenbeans from the garden. It was a bit of an odd bucket of food to throw together, but the spicy meat was the perfect compliment to the sweet sherry sauce.
Thank you, Jesse and Caroline!
Speaking of friends, I found this here creature in the garden this evening. Here's his front view:
And here's his side view:
I have no idea whether he's friend or foe, but I'm not sharing my low country boil leftovers with him regardless. No way. No how.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
