We really were so lucky to have hit it off so well with cousins Jeff and Theresa. I mean, we kind of knew each other a little through family functions and events, but we’d never hung out for real. The visit was a lot of getting-to-know you questions and answers from both sides. I peppered Jeff with questions about his growing up and the rest of his siblings — there were six all together! — and he told me things I didn’t remember about my Dad. Like the Chileans visiting.
“You have his laugh, you know,” said Jeff one night.
“Oh really?” I asked.
“Nobody ever told you that?”
Nope. They hadn’t. I’m glad Jeff did.

We started with wine on the porch. This bottle will look familiar to SCF fans. Yup, it’s Wolffer.
We brought it up from home to share with these guys.
After some cocktailing, we got the rest of supper ready together. I was on corn duty.
(And I don’t mind saying, I almost messed it up royally by forgetting to pull it out of the water. I was off my game.)

Et voila, celery into lobster salad:
