Summer (?) Dinner

For the record, it doesn't feel like summer in Maine. This may be my first summer here, but I've been to Maine in the summer before (granted, August), and it was warm. Hot, even. The high for today is a whopping 58 degrees.

So between the weather and the garden produce, there is no real sign of summer in Maine. So the 'summer' dinner you see here is more a product of wishful thinking than actuality. The corn is from Georgia (Whole Foods again), but the lettuce is from my garden and the potatoes from Snell's Family Farm in Buxton (via the Deering Oaks Farmers' Market).

 I made a delicious potato salad, with fresh cilantro, parsley, chives, and dill from the garden. M made the chicken, with Dinosaur Barbeque sauce, an upstate New York specialty.

So while it may still feel like April outside, I'm doing my best to keep summer in my hearts and on my plates.
