Okay, the food. Yesterday was steak on the grill, corn on the cob--all good right there, especially with a mostly male house! We had grilled veggies too, foil packet, red & yellow peppers & zucchini, olive oil, salt, pepper & fresh basil. So yummy. Mushrooms & sweet onions sauteed in butter, of course. Fresh salad of ripe tomatoes and avocados, just a little olive oil and salt, lots of fresh basil. Dessert was cheap generic fridge biscuits, baked with a little cinnamon on top. Cover them with this fruit mix. Four fresh peaches, sliced, chopped, whatever. Dump into a fry pan with a stick of butter, a bunch of honey, vanilla, ginger and cinnamon. When all bubbly and yummy pour over biscuits and top with fresh chopped mint. MMM MMM. Still thinking about those biscuits.

A big meal to be certain, but all very light. So we all felt full, but not rolly polly stuffed.
