UPDATE on the RUFF! I read  a sad report on a birding forum that the Ruff was seen on the shore in its favorite corner of the salt pond this afternoon, but it has been wounded! The writer said blood was showing on both legs, and when it lifted its wings there was a wound under the wing. Speculation is the Falcon or Harrier that was seen there yesterday and this morning may have nicked it, his opinion is that the wound is fatal! Hoping that it will be rescued and nursed back to health.

Nature can be so cruel!

…Fresh Chili Peppers!

P52 35 of 52 Summer is

 He-Man picked up a variety of chili peppers at the Farmer’s Market to make his Salsa. This batch is packing some heat that sweetens as it cools, and it has a good after-taste. We snacked on chips & salsa, and chased it down with little bottles of Corona Extra with a lime slice on top which you can’t see. Actually this turned out to be my dinner that night. Miam, miam!

The Smokin’ Grill Cafe

Grilled Chicken Salad

 I based the title on the bit of smoke that was coming off the grill. I had to turn the Vent on high and open the sliding glass door. I thought our Smoke Alarm would go off, but it didn’t.  🙂

Chicken Breast on the Grill

I grilled the chicken, and He-Man made the green salad. He makes the best salads. They’re always loaded with fresh veggies that he picks up at the Farmer’s Market. This one had Avocado, Cucumber, Orange, Yellow, and Red Bell Peppers, Red Onion, Tomatoes, and Radishes. There were so many good veggies there wasn’t much room for the lettuce! To top it off he tossed in some Parmesan Cheese. I sliced up a Grilled chicken breast tenderloin on top of my salad. I dressed it with a little Balsamic Vinegar.   I’m stuffed!

I’ve been photographing a lot of food lately which I’ll be sharing. I’m having fun, lighting, and learning to stage it, and I get to eat it when done taking the photo. 🙂
