First Fall Dinner

We had our first real Fall dinner last night - kale from our garden gently cooked with shiitake mushrooms in sherry - the last of our beefsteak tomatoes  - sweet potatoes roasted with lemon and garlic. Captain Andy caught a nice striper at the 'elbow' near the Montauk Lighthouse so we baked it with oregano, celery and garlic. We ate at the kitchen table, just a wee bit too chilly to eat outside on the patio, a bittersweet time, mostly sweet, we have crisp days and cozy nights ahead, soups and stews on the stove and the stripers have returned in all their splendor. We wore socks and enjoyed our Montauk feast with a bottle of our rosé. Who says rosé is just for summertime?
