So all the remains of the dinner last night came home with us, and everyone agreed to descend on our house to finish it all. I took the guts of the red & yellow tomatoes left from the sashimi and made a salsa with red onion, lime, cilantro and a serrano chile, plus guacamole, brown rice, black beans, and the salmon became a salad with sweet potato, black olives, cinnamon, and lemon. Liz brought green beans, and John pesto, which combined after a quick steam of the beans, and Chris and Sirkka brought salad greens from their garden. There was also corn, and a ton of cheese from last night and from our neighbors Deb & Debra who also came. Everyone got a tortilla and went to town. John brought a 1978 Fixin, a 1991 Cabernet, and a 1995 Cabernet from Argentina, all of which he was sceptical about, and all of which were great, especially the Burgundy. Living up here is so far all we hoped for and more.
