Ok folks, I have been very lax over the past few months in starting the "Indulgence of the Night" thread. I would like to remedy that. This particular thread will take us through the Holiday week, and will be started weekly thereafter. This is your chance to share that great meal, drink, smoke, whatever that thrills your evening.
I'll get us started. We didn't have a chance to go food shopping, so the boys and I raided our vegetable garden to make a dynamite salad. We got several kinds of lettuce, fresh peas, and some beets out of the garden. The peas were blanched, the beets were roasted, and everything was chilled down and tossed together with a sherry vinegarette. Add some Maytag blue cheese I had on hand, some fried shallots, and a good loaf of bread, and a good time was had by all. Washed it down with some New Zealand Cloudy Bay Sauvingon Blanc.
After dinner, it was out to the porch for this:
Life is good.
