Summer Food

Ah summer. Despite hayfever, allergies, heat, sunburn, skunks and bugs, summer pleasures win out. Dinner at 93 degrees can be summer greens, fresh sliced tomato, and slices of grilled marinated steak. Or...a slice of three cheese bread covered in sliced tomato, fresh oregano and slices of cheese. Awesome! Or...when it seems entirely too hot, a half a chilled canteloupe refreshes nicely.

This is not the season for pot roast in gravy, chicken & dumplings, heavy pasta sauces or Aunt Barb's Swedish Meatballs. Meatloaf can wait. Light meals, no heat, iced drinks on the deck. Wonderful.

What are your favorite summer meals?
