Not having my own camera has been a blessing in disguise. I still do everything I used to do when I posted about it constantly the only difference now is since I dont have a camera at the ready I dont feel the 'obligation' to document it. Dont get me wrong five years of blogging has been great and I have noticed the surge of blogs in the last couple of years which is also great but having this break has been the greatest. I still read hundreds of blogs on my reader and I am still inspired and annoyed in equal measure but having this self imposed distance has enabled me to get a good perspective on things. What will all of this mean? Nothing. Once I get a camera I will be back in black, nine lives, cats eyes the whole works. We eat a lot of corn on the cob made in all kinds of ways, grilled, boiled - you name it, for about a two or three week window - this one has mexican mayonnaise, cotija cheese, red chile, a squeeze of lime and salt - tasty on a stick! How do you like your corn?
With the abundance of fruits, melons and berries we have been making the best of the season enjoying this bounty in any way we can think. This is a lightly sauteed sole filet that was sauteed in butter with some morel mushrooms then it was served on top of some cucumber 'slaw' with a few blackberries scattered around for sweet/tartness and a little dollop of masago for color and fishy richness.
This was one lunch dish that made it through the rotation twice it was so good, the first time I made it to rave reviews I was asked to make it again only a couple days later, this is one redundancy I can deal with.
