Joy Shinn of Charlottetown, PEI
August 1st is a community strawberry social for our neighbourhood, but that might be a bit of a stretch, so we’ll plan a “real” BBQ for Canada Day #2 with our good friends and neighbours on Irwin Dr.
They will be serving: Summertime in PEI means the simplest cooking – steamed mussels and clams, with fresh herbs, pan seared scallops and BBQ salmon (with fig balsamic – I’m addicted) complimented of course with PEI potatoes – garlic smashed is my new favourite way to prepare them. If we’re cruising around we’ll pick up seafood at the wharf. Potatoes are from FoodTrust farmers and the herbs come straight from our garden, as well as some lettuce. (This is our first year growing blue potatoes, but they’re pretty small, yet).
