“Midsummer’s Day, London, 1888
The gas lamps hissed as the cold rain fell on their hot glass and sputtered and burned, evaporating, collaborating with the mist that already hung about the streets and seemed to flow like ghosts out of side alleys and the drains that led down to the sewers. It was an unusually cold Summer thus far and he pulled his collar up on his trench coat as the rain poured down. He shuttered and hunched his shoulders against the cold. Rounding a corner into a particularly dark alley, he thought he saw movement in the misty shadows. He stopped. “Who’s there?” he asked the lonely night. No response…”

This one is a cheese steak stand in Mount Vernon, WA. We went there to see the tulips at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, stopped in at Christianson’s nursery, and found these wonderful cheese steaks! Having lived on the east coast for many years, I have been to Pat’s Steaks in Philadelphia and as awesome as those cheese steaks are, these cheese steaks at the nursery were better! You have to try them.
And while you are in the area, check out the tulip festival. It is a festival of sights, color, scents and nature’s beauty. And don’t forget to stop by Pasek’s Wine Cellars for a wine tasting and a few bottles to go! Bon Apetit!
Here is my Youtube video of the steaks being made:

I made guilty grilled 3-cheese sandwiches and tantalizing tomato basil soup last night! I took bacon, mushrooms, red onions and roasted red peppers and grilled them up in a pan. Then I toasted some bread and added Muenster, Blue Cheese and Tillamook Applewood Smoked Cheddar. I melted all the cheeses then added the saute and grilled them all together in the pan!
Then I made tomato basil soup with some secret herbs, spices and seasonings. Served that with a smiley face creme fresh and with the grilled cheese, it was delectable. Enjoy!
