“We like the things that summer brings. It brings the sun. It brings the heat. It brings the things we like to eat.”
~Alice Low (from Summer)
It is finally beginning to feel like summer here and we've been busy doing summery things. Like visiting the farmers' market:
Cooking farmers' market finds...like fava beans on the grill- YUM! (Thank you 101 Cookbooks for this recipe!):
Drinking freshly made fruit and veggie juices to hydrate our bodies with "liquid sunshine" (thanks Kris Carr for this term!) first thing in the morning. This...
Planting a garden of too many things (as usual!) in my little garden box and in pots around the yard:
Even my little orange tree that finally gave us oranges this year is piping up!
As usual, too, I am making lists and planning to relax more this summer. I am looking forward to camping and hiking, swimming and picnics, eating outside and fiction on my Kindle.
What is your favorite thing about summer?
