Last night The Wife & I sat, drinks in hand, in our garden. The sun sank behind the oak trees as we bid farewell to the fleeting summer. Our two Boston Terriers wrestled in the yard, and we made a list of our 100 reasons to be thankful for this time of year. I won't bore you, dear reader, with all 100, but many of the reasons we love the summer have to do with the availability of fresh, local fruits & vegetables, and our ability to forge these things into delicious dishes. As the last rays of light leached out of the sky, I cut herbs from the garden to use for dinner. Pasta was boiled, spinach washed, tomatoes and herbs chopped, thanks was given, prayers offered, and our last summer meal was eaten. We could not be sad. This summer was full. We just let this be our annual reminder that we could all be something bigger.
