We’ve had some company at the Crossroads recently. Over a week ago, our grandkids and their parents were here for a visit.
We had a delicious lunch. Leo grilled some pork tenderloins, and the rest of the meal was composed of fresh veggies from the garden and some butterbeans we bought at the farmer’s market.
For dessert, I made this dessert in my new trifle dish given to me by my sister-in-law Jean. I had broken my other trifle dish, and Jean knew I was looking for a new one. So when she saw this one in an antique store, she bought it. Isn’t it pretty?
After lunch, the kids went out into the garden to gather some vegetables.
We all had a wonderful day visiting with each other but by the end of the day, Rose was a little tuckered out (not to mention Pop and Janie.)
The next day Leo’s son David, and Ginny, his significant other, stopped by the Crossroads on their way back from the beach. They brought 3 pounds of fresh shrimp, so we made a Beaufort stew with the shrimp, some smoked sausage, and fresh corn and new potatoes from the garden. Yum, yum, yum!
Last Friday evening we were riding around on the golf cart with Leo’s brother Jim and his wife and we came upon this field of sunflowers that was planted by Leo’s cousin Mark.
This past weekend my other sister-in-law Jean came for a visit. We has some more good meals and some good times with her. On Monday, we went to the auction that is held not too far from where we live.
What a great time we’ve had recently with our family at the Crossroads.
