Well today is the Labor Day holiday and there is the 1st annual International Brewmasters Festival up at Moody Gardens in Galveston. Seems to be the only thing in town going on, besides Labor Day sales at stores. We were going to head to the beach today but it is rainy here.
I found a delicious recipe for sea scallops Saturday. The 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup white wine, I just poured in a medium splash of chardonnay. here is the page for Butter Fried Scallops. I didn't brown mine as dark as she had them, I was afraid of overcooking them. At the end, when it says turn off the heat & leave the pan set on the burner, I left it on for 3 minutes (timed it) and took it off. They were just right and really sweet. Wish I had bought more than a pound of scallops for that recipe! My husband is in training right now for a marathon (Wineglass Marathon up in Corning NY) so no bacon-wrapped until he's run it. My youngest has taken up running also.
We had our 22nd anniversary last week... hard to believe that we've been together 22 years! It doesn't seem like that long.. but again, then it seems like it's been forever that we've been together.
I was reading an account of the Bonus Army, at Acostia Flats. Don't know that bit of history? It was comprised of WW1 veterans and their families, who went to Washington DC during the depression to get now the money they had been promised in 1945. There is a button off to the right side about half-way down, that gives you a page that is an eyewitness account of that. Quite interesting.
On another note, a tropical storm has popped up in the Gulf - Hermine. So now I have that to look forward to! bleah!
Enjoy the long weekend.
