So Long Summer Sunday Supper

Strolling through our archives is fun. So many meals bring back memories, or simply remind us that we haven’t made a favorite recipe in awhile.

We mention our friends Richard and Brian a lot. The picture of the salad sans croutons reminded us of our last dinner with them at our house. We got to talking and burned the croutons to a crisp. The salad was fine without them; good company trumps minor kitchen disasters.

If you need a crouton recipe, here’s one. The bread is quite time-consuming, so feel free to run out and buy some, especially if it’s still hot. And if berries are out of season where you are, the zabaglione is great without them.

Chicago John, we hope you like this week’s theme.

Vegetable Ragout

Extra grated Romano is never a bad idea


Drizzle a little balsamic in some extra virgin olive oil for the perfect dip

Caesar Salad

There usually is not any left over

Mixed-berry Zabaglione

Jello pudding has nothing on this

    What a delightful Sunday supper, Greg. The evenings are cooling off here in the big smoke so is getting a bit nippy but it’s also wonderful to have the windows open again.

    It certainly is a lovely collection of dishes.. what i love most about your food is that I can cook it. It is food with the simple good cook in mind! However I must add that i will NEVER have a liquor cabinet as well stocked as yours! Love to.. but dreaming! c

    “Like the theme”? You’re kidding, right? This would be a fantastic meal, a dish or two I may be “borrowing” during my visit home this week. If I’ve a complaint, it’s with the name only. Instead of “So Long Summer”, how about “Not So Fast Fall”.

  9. I could go for that Caesar salad right now.

  10. Stunning pics, the bread looks great but the Zabaglione is stunning.

  11. These all look delicious! I wish it was so long, summer. We had a hint of fall this morning, early, when the temps were at 60, but it has zoomed up this afternoon to remind us that indeed…summer isn’t over yet!

    I am looking forward to fall sunday suppers.

    I’d happily eat this meal in any season. Delicious!!!

  14. Sensational from beginning to end, even sans the croutons.

    So long … aww. This makes me a bit sad. SUMMER Sunday Suppers are over, but that doesn’t mean ALL Sunday Suppers have to end. Looking forward to all the tasty fall/winter comfort foods.

    Great combo! I’m excited for Fall as well! Goodbye Summer!!!

  17. Purely.. Kay says:

    That salad is calling me right now and its saying “You know you wanna make me right now” LOL.
