Blueberry Slush

When I first made this recipe, it was quite the ordeal. First, we had to find the blue curacao. Then we realized we didnít have tequila. Then we didnít have enough limes. After a run out to get booze and more limes, Patrick came back only with limes... the liquor store had closed. So we substituted vodka. Then the blender exploded all over the counter. Let me tell you, when I sat down with this drink, I was mighty glad it was very very delicious.

Drunken Beans

Rancho Gordoís cookbook again. He calls for using Pinto, Rio Zape, Red Appoloosa or Anasazi beans, but what I had on hand was Yellow Indian Woman beans. Delishy.... and making it into the repertoire, for sure.

Vanís Coleslaw

This here tastes to me like a real old fashioned slaw. Not too sweet, not too tangy. We got this from ďAmerica's Best BBQ: 100 Recipes from America's Best Smokehouses, Pits, Shacks, Rib Joints, Roadhouses, and Restaurants,Ē which credits Bob Sykeís BarB-Q in Bessemer, Ala. as the source. Turns out, Vanís parents Bob and Maxine Sykes opened the joint in 1956, and itís still going strong. One taste of this slaw and you wonít question why.

Out in the Fields, Building Beds

We got busy in the fields Sunday, giving our new friends at the farm a proper place to stay. We planted the lingonberries in front of the rock and the black currants next to the fence. I also took a little tour of the garden. Little fruits are everywhere! Here is our very first Anjou pear.

Green Chile Pork Posole

I love posole, the Mexican soup with pork, hominy and chilies. When I lived in Mexico eons ago, the family spent days making it in preparation for a Motherís Day feast. It took so long that Iíve never made it for fear I would start it and not be finished the following week. So when I came across a recipe in Bon Appetit magazine that looked like it could be done only a few moments, I rushed out to the store. The key? Pork tenderloin instead of cut of pork that needs to be braised low and slow. Oh, and canned hominy, of course.

Stuart's Fish Market in Amagansett

The plan after Channing Daughters was to pick up some barbecue at Town Line Barbecue (warning: very annoying music), open up a couple bottles of Channing Daughters rose and head for the beach. Of course, this being the week of crap weather, that didnít work out for us in any way, shape of form. We ended up at Stuartís Fish Market in Amagansett. The local oysters were amazing:

An Enlightening Visit to Channing Daughters

Weíve been big fans of Channing Daughters wines for a long time. (Hereís a a post from where weíre enjoying the 2004 rosť!) So we were really looking forward to our visit to the winery, which is in Bridgehampton, on the South Fork. After visiting, we were full of even more admiration. Christopher Tracy, a partner and the winemaker, was delightful, and we admired his creativity, ingenuity and high standards. It would be how weíd like to run a winery. Or a farm. A real one, that is.
