Summer Cooking:: part 3

Another summery salad. This time it is "tomate con choclo" or tomatoes with corn, easily the most popular salad in Chile. Throughout the year I lived in Chile, I'm sure I ate this once a week. Fresh corn, boiled and cut off the cob, chopped tomatoes and fresh basil from our garden, some s&p, and a little oil. Mmmm. So summery!

Here is the rest of the meal. Ron's homemade mac & cheese with a crunchy bread crumb topping and salmon sandwiches. Actually, the salmon was baked with a few spices on it, then put on a fresh, soft bun with ample mayonaise and a fistfull of chopped cilantro. Summer on a bun.

Every one loves a little watermelon with their meal!

And here's Aren, enjoying our new summer fun, the kegerator that will eventually be brought to the farm. In the meantime, it sits in the garage with a keg of Premium. Ahhh, summer.

I want a ladies' night on the lawn with the kegerator! (well, I want the whole meal as well, but...)

I really like the "masthead" on your blog--as well as the content, of course. I was so inspired I changed the header on my blog (

I found the pool at a nursery just west of St. Augustine, Florida. It was the most wonderful display I have seen. The nursery was like stepping into an entirely different world for me.

Anyway, I love your blog and have tried "tomate con choclo" without the homemade mac&cheese.

Take care of yourself and your great family.
