The world goes round with great food and the warm company of family. On this beautiful Sunday afternoon, we enjoyed a meal with my parents. We prepared whole grain bread, grilled chicken (marinated in home grown lemon juice, soy sauce, and red pepper olive oil), mixed greens salad (local tomatoes, goat cheese, toasted walnuts, corn, black beans, dates), orange slices (from in-laws' orchard), and plum wine* (homemade). What do you make when you have company?
*Note: The "plum wine" may not technically a wine because there is no yeast. We made it July 2010; equal parts plum to sugar and sealed it. The color is like a beautiful rosé wine. It tastes like summer. Sweet. Clear. Happy.
