September: England

September is England

Summer is now officially over and all of the kids are going back to school this week here where we live.  

We spent Labor Day weekend at the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence with Tom's sister and family.  We didn't cook much --- because it was so hot--- but Gretchen made a delicious crunchy salad to go with our hamburgers and hot dogs --- which I will post tomorrow.  

In the meantime, it is time for a new month of cuisine.  This month is England.  The tablescape is set for tea.
