Summertime Food

As I write this, I’m breathing a sigh of relief, because the weatherman was wrong when he said the temperature would reach the 90’s here, today. We had the low 80’s, which is ever so much more comfortable. 😉

But there’s no denying that summer is coming! So, as we approach the unofficial start of the season (Memorial Day Weekend), I thought it was time for another installment of Lucky Seven. 😀

For this week, I have . . .

7 Favorite Summertime Foods

1. Corn on the Cob
Sweet and Delish – especially when it’s very fresh!

2. Watermelon (Even better when it’s part of a big ole fruit salad that’s been placed in a scooped-out watermelon shell!)

3. A Hot Dog on the grill is about as traditional as you can get for summer food. Ok, they’re not good for you, but as Socrates once said: “Everything in moderation”. I’ll take mine with plenty of mustard and relish, please!

4. Grilled Veggies
A colorful medley of fresh vegetables with olive oil and herbs, wrapped in foil, and cooked on the grill? Oh la la!

5. Potato Salad
The best is homemade, of course. The ladies in our family liked to add hardboiled eggs and chopped sweet pickles – oh so good! Gosh, I almost drooled on the keyboard. 😉

6. Seafood
Here in New England, lobster and clams are a big part of summer dining. They’re easy to cook and fun to eat at the backyard picnic table, where nobody cares how messy you are!

7. Ice Cream
Whether it’s sundaes, scoops, cones, Klondike Bars, frozen yogurt, or Popsicles – I scream, you scream, we all scream . . . 😉
