Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood

Buck took our oldest car down to Johnson’s Trim Shop today to have the head liner replaced (it was falling down like an elderly aunt’s petticoat). I met him there and we continued down “W” Street all the way to Joe Patti’s Seafood.

Lots of great stuff there, but for tonight, Buck picked out a couple of wild caught salmon fillets, while I rummaged around in their gourmet shop, Amangiari’s, and found some fat asparagus and two Idaho potatoes so huge we ended up sharing only one of them.

So what if it is Monday? This was a party menu. Life is short. Enjoy.


Steam the asparagus for a few minutes, then toss them in a lovely melange of olive oil, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, sliced garlic, Kosher salt, pepper and Mediterranean oregano.



I guess I ate too many tomatoes when I was a kid, peddling my bike to the field to pick them, then standing on a stool at the kitchen sink and eating warm, ripe tomatoes until I broke out in hives. Now, I am seriously allergic to this member of the deadly nightshade family and can only admire it from afar.

The salmon was grilled (on an indoor grill) with a balsamic vinegar, honey, dark brown sugar  and Japanese vinegar glaze.



One happy woman (still in love with the camera man, after all these years).
