Thursday @ Merrilyn’s

But first, an update. Kathy and I arrived in Sacramento late Sunday evening, we’d been traveling for 24 hours. It took a couple of days to adjust to California time.

By chance, our appetizers were both bell-pepper oriented this time. Mine was a cucumber/dill/cream cheese dip. Merrilyn made caramelized peppers with capers and Gorgonzola on crostini.

Everything in Merrilyn’s yard is popping with blooms.

It’s so good to be home!!

Another delicious get together. Salmon taquitos (that didn’t turn out picture-perfect) with avocado crema and a layered pesto torta. And a very good bottle of wine from Yellowstone Cellars in Billings MT.

Thursday @ Merrilyn’s

Merrilyn is totally vaccinated and I’m halfway there so we “risked” it and got together for a visit. We were both in veggie mode. Toasted walnut hummus with pita crackers and raw vegetables and – a favorite recipe of Phyllis – Veggie Bars.
