My sister leaves tonight-- we've had a nice visit. Friends came over for a casual dinner last night, bringing boudin that we put on the grill, I made a loaf of my good Italian bread, and we feasted. I made the chilled tomato platter linked below, except I added come sliced cucumbers to the mix, and we grilled some corn, then finished up with a ripe cantaloup. My idea of a perfect light supper for a hot summer day-- and Monday is the first day of summer, so appropriate.
The colossal grilled shrimp would make *any* dad happy this weekend; the bonus on the recipe, the crabmeat stuffing works great as a standalone for crab cakes. Serve with your favorite rémoulade dressing; they'll go fast. And the final recipe, the chicken with corn maque choux, is one of those back pocket recipes I turn to when the markets are full of corn and ripe tomatoes, and I don't want to fool around with anything complicated. Serve it with good crusty bread, or fluffy white rice, for soaking up the sauce.
Enjoy the recipes below, stay safe and healthy, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind.
