saying goodbye to summer through food

as i was planning dinner the other night i realized it was time for a change of menu. we can all say goodbye to all the fresh fruits and veggies we have enjoyed all summer. just another one of those little things i dislike about winter. winter food can be fun but it lacks the color and vibrance of freshness.

with a recipe to share for you this was probably my last summer meal. a light dinner of tilapia with a reduced balsamic sauce....very yummy.

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (i buy one bottle that is very expensive for sauces and dressings
1 clove minced garlic. cook on medium until it reduces...approx 5-7 minutes while whisking. remove from heat. saute your tilapia in olive oil salt and pepper until done....just a few minutes. reheat the sauce and slowly add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of butter (i know, i know) butt it is good.

drizzle sauce over fish. it is also very good over sugar snap peas. NOT snow peas. big difference. a little wild rice, fresh ground coffee and the very last of fresh peaches plucked from the freezer to make the seasons last cobbler. YUM!!!

cobbler is much better cooked. in addition, you know it is the last summer cobbler when it is resting on a halloween hotpad.

love to all, me.
