It’s been an absolutely gorgeous July — the humidity broke earlier this week, and it’s been glorious eating al fresco. We BBQ roasted some rather tasteless tomatoes for a fresh Caprice salad (we did it on the BBQ so we wouldn’t have to turn on the oven!) and grilled a couple of large scallops. I reduced some Blueberry Balsamic to a delicious tangy dressing (Blueberry Balsamic from the Filling Station in NYC – yes, I have been known to purchase some unusual souvenirs!) and drizzled some delicious peppery EVOO (the EVOO was a gift from Tom and Iona when they were over for dinner a few months ago, it’s made by his family!). We even had a good selection of home grown mini tomatoes freshly harvested that day! Very tasty indeed!
