Breakfast, a little Salmon prep, some sadness

This could be the perfect late summer breakfast. The nectarines are perfectly ripe, the jam is Bob’s Backyard Blackberry, the butter is locally made.


And we will be having fresh caught Skagit Bay Coho, or Silver salmon dinner tonight, from our friend Kurt.

We will BBQ the Coho after rubbing with OO and garlic

I’ve been thinking about Sheila Lukins this weekend and how much I love the Silver Palate series of cookbooks, and Around the World Cookbook. I could always sense her particular joy and depth of understanding about ingredients. Though I never met her I am going to miss her spirit. I think she inspired my travels, my culinary adventures……we will light some candles at dinner tonight and celebrate her life.
