Summer isn’t over yet, people. Keep up the swimming and the grilling and the playing. And the eating. Out of ideas for meals? Need fresh ones? I have my own short list of recipes, most of which have key ingredients from your local farmers market or garden.
The Food of Summer
Oh, how I love all things about the BLT. For one fabulous Foodie Friday at Arkansas Women Bloggers, I’ve shown you how to do it: for breakfast, for lunch, for always.
Bacon, lettuce, and tomato…a variety of ways. Go beyond the sandwich.
These summer drinks: fruity and kid-friendly. I hear LaCroix is all the rage these days. That will work in these drinks, but’ll you’ll need the berries and maybe the syrup to sweeten a bit. My boys and I made these recipes, and you can mix ’em here.
Zucchini Chocolate Bread with Chocolate Chunks, which, by the way, also works as a fall food. I like to make several loaves, so when The Pilot’s away, I’ve got breakfast lined up for days. Gobble up the recipe at Taste Arkansas. (Psst. This bread also works as a fall food).
You, too, can turn this bowl of fresh peaches into Peach Pizza. Other ingredients include butter, powdered sugar, and almond extract.
This hamburger. THIS hamburger. It’s caprese-style, only with the almond on the inside of the meat. Perfect texture. Perfect taste. (These we eat when The Pilot is home.) I wrote about it here, and the recipe is here.
