    Wow, Michael - how beautiful and lovely this looks! It looks so fresh and tasty. Your pictures are outstanding, too. Swordfish is so delicious and I love tarragon and sage (one of my faves, ever, and I'm growing it, too.) That sage-infused brown butter combo works for so much - I use it with sea scallops a lot.

    You get a big 5 from me and this makes me most hungry. Happy Birthday again. hon - and best wishes.

    And a happy 4th to you!

    Smiles,
    ~Vickie
