This last weekend I flew out to Minneapolis to see some family. I took the light rail to my aunt Elly's house. She has a garden done in what I would call the french intensive style. We picked purple beans, squash blossoms, arugula, nasturtium, and chard for a lunch salad.

Elly made a batter for the squash blossoms and filled them with blue cheese. I pan fried them and she covered them with a dash of salt and parmesan.

My grandmother organized a party up north to Gull Lake for 4 days. I sailed. My parents kayaked.
