Summer Feast

I don't know about you, but sometimes I wake up with the itch to cook a big, ambitious meal.  Usually I'm also totally exhausted by the time we sit down to enjoy it, but it's worth the effort.  That's what happened this past Sunday after I paged through last July's issue of Gourmet (damn you, Conde Nast! Sniffle, sniffle) and Alice Water's The Art of Simple Food.
Here's what was on the menu:

A green salad with capricio de cabra goat cheese and a champagne vinaigrette (we got really fancy and added a little dijon mustard and honey to it).  I've found the goat cheese at Whole Foods and the GFS here in Missoula.  Buy the kind rolled in green pepper.  Heaven.
Corn and tomato scramble from Gourmet.  The whites of scallions sauteed in a little butter and then the corn tossed in really makes this more than just a corn and tomato salad. 
A goat cheese souffle.  More capricio de cabra.  Fluffy heaven.
Honey Caramel Peach Pie.  I forgot to take photos this time, but it looked just like this one from last summer.  We feasted with the MM's brother and sister-in-law, who were in town with their 9 month-old daughter, Seddona.  Good food is always better shared with good company.
Good company is also nice for doing the dishes while the cook collapses in a heap.
