Summer is over and our garden is dying. The tomato plants totally burned up with the heat. The squash, cucumbers and zuchinni are dead. We had some corn until some crows showed up and ate it all. The only things left are the green peppers and a random watermelon. It's pretty sad looking.
We celebrated Tom's dinner on Saturday since we had no time this week. We headed to Waynesville to have dinner at The Chef's Table. I have written about this restaurant before because it is so good. They make their own pasta and all the food is locally grown. I totally support that!
The pictures are crappy but the food was delish. We couldn't even have dessert because we were so full. It was so nice to have a great meal.
On the way home I drove the new car. Then on the highway, I see something run across 2 lanes of traffic and then stop at the median between the road. Then I see a baby bear take off across our two lanes of traffic. OMG, stupid baby black bear almost got killed.
I am so glad I didn't hit it because that would have been bad!
Tuesday we had a mini-cocktail party for Tom's Faculty and Staff. Of course, I was roped in to do food. I usually put out a fancier spread than this but we knew that not that many people were coming and Tom wanted simple.
I cheated and went the cheese plate route. But good cheeses! I love cheese. I got some good sausage as well. I also bought some Hormel Deli bites becuase I am a sucker for those. They are so tasty.
I made homemade deviled eggs. I also made my in-my-world-famous bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden. And lastly, I made some goat cheese and roasted tomato tarts.
I had to put out the some hummus and chips and dip, just because it is not a party with some of the usual stuff.
It went well but now we have cheese up the wazoo. But I don't think it's a big problem having cheese up the wazoo. Yummy.
