Potatoes Boiled in Vinegar

 Still muggy.

After chores I went for a Trike ride down Ladue Road...before it got too hot.

Picked a few things in the garden, and when I got back in the house....Roger called and invited us to dinner.  I said yes and volunteered to make a rustic rhubarb pie

 Between us, Gary and I picked enough tomatoes for two pots of sauce...

 along with two containers of veggies.
 One for Margay and Ulpi...the other for Tina and Roger.
 In addition to the pie, I made some very different potatoes for our dinner.  Got the recipe from FB.  First I put two cups of vinegar in a frying pan.
 In the meantime I sliced 5 potatoes, which were added to the vinegar and brought to a boil for about 8 minutes.  Turned off the heat and let them sit there for 30 minutes.
Then, drained them, dried them on paper towels, put them back in the clean empty pan, covered them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and placed them on a cookie sheet under the broiler.  It took about 9 minutes to brown up, then I turned them over and browned the other side.
  Voila!  SPECTACULAR flavor.

 Got to Roger and Tina's a little after 6.

 The meal was spectacular!  Roasted chicken and salad, along with the salt and vinegar potatoes.

 We ate out on the patio and DJ kept us company.

 The pie was delish.

 Night all.

 Don't you hate it when you go into the barn and the air is still and muggy?

 We ended up with a dozen sprinkles and that was about it.

 They opened a new T J Max down near Wegmans, so I had to check it out.  It's nice to have some options in our little town.  Picked up some groceries and as I was leaving Weggies, realized it was time for the Sundays on the Canal final performance.  So...I drove over to the Welcome Center and grabbed a few photos for Gary.  
Today featured "Fever Pitch", an a cappella barbershop quartet.  The wind showed up in all my videos, but I have to tell you...these four men had great voices.


 Carol and Topper stopped in for a little while...loaded them up with veggies and then started getting it together for dinner.
 Jenny and the boys wanted to do a belated birthday meal for us.
 Shish ke bobs...salad

 corn and lomain.

 They even made me a birthday cake.  Devils food with peanut butter cream frosting.  It was actually very light and DELICIOUS.  The boys put on trick candles so I could not blow them out.

 Just before we finished dinner, thecrazysheeplady called with a question about the bruchetta she was preparing for dinner.  Asked her to send me a photo and she did...looks good enough to eat!  Right? Big yum...I'll bet Saint Tim loved it.

 Chores at 7:30.  Karen final had a night off.

 By the time the girls were tucked in,
 we were having a beautiful sunset...and it finally cooled off.

Night all.
