Homegrown Simplicity with a Curd

It’s no secret that we Charlie has a garden at The Glade.

Charlie’s garden

So when we were invited to a send-off party for our friend in the U.S.Navy who will be shipping out this week, we wanted to take something for the food buffet.

A salade composée of tomatoes and cucumbers with a feta and pesto dressing.

Simple and cool the platter includes sliced fresh cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden with a dressing of pesto, olive oil and feta cheese. (I’m thinking feta is a curd, not just a curd but a Kurdish curd.)

Sliced cucumbers and tomatoes topped with pestoed feta.

Anchors Aweigh and Godspeed! We’ll see you when you return.

What are you counting among your simple blessings?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
