Update

Pardon the time lapse.  We have been pretty busy scurrying around, workng on real estate, writing and taking care of family.  The fall is passing and the market has had a good run for the season. The dry season took a toll on volume, but harvest ran a month longer because of a mild October.  I have been taking pictures of the market and have placed them in a photo album on my website.  (http://georges-table.com/_wsn/page5.html)

Our latest restoration project has been completed and we are making test recipes for the cookbook in the fabulous marble countered kitchen.  (http://georges-table.com/_wsn/page3.html).  Sara and I have been entertaining in between showing the house.  The menus are relatively simple and quick.  Most of the energy goes into prepping the fresh organic produce from the Farmer’s Market in Royal Oak.   Here is the menu last Friday:
