LONGLEAF STORIES

full circle in the hundred acre wood

What is it about writer types that when there is something big brewing, something fermenting in the true ink pen or the walking hard drive of the mind, that we find something — anything — else to do, like I did today?

I dusted, cleaned out cabinets, rearranged bookshelves, hung pictures on walls, found new arrangements for lamps, polished copper, planned a menu for tomorrow night’s family supper out here at the Longleaf Bar & Grill, considered what might be in the pantry or the freezer that I could make a dinner out of. . . and WOW, here’s the result:

Seared Scallops glazed with chardonnay & scattered with capers

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Steamed Baby Spinach

Seared scallops & garlic mashed 

Unbelieveable. Who knew this was hanging out in the pantry, the fridge & the freezer?

Hasta la vista. The pen is full of ink and the yellow legal pads await.

Et tu, Gully?

    Glad I checked this out just before dinner…now I'm really hungry! ^-^ Too bad I can't just download the actual plate…sure looks delicious!
    And the first part of your post could have been an email from my sister…does this happen to all budding writers? LOL

    Here I sit at work, a couple of hours till lunch, stomach growling, starving to death, and I had to read this delectable writing. How am I going to eat my round steak (bologna) sandwich now? Oh the inhumanity!
