July 7, 2012

So hot!  102 degrees F.  Bad air quality.  I can't imagine surviving this without air conditioning, yet there are several thousand people still without power from last week's storm.  Plants are suffering too.  My poor deck garden--I keep watering yet everything just looks parched and sad.

Thanks to my AC, I'm making gumbo today.  Shrimps and crab and andouille, a good chocolate brown roux, the trinity (onion, celery and green bell pepper) and lovely organically grown okra from a local farm.
