The Think Write Thursday topic for July 27, 2017 is to share your favorite summer meal ideas, including recipes if applicable. Are you all about the grill? Or maybe you prefer salads. Do you use your crockpot a lot in the summer? Or would you rather have sandwiches? Tell us what you’re eating and tell us how you prepare it!
I love food and I love to eat, as you well know if you’ve read this blog for, oh, about 5 minutes. When it comes to summer time eating, I like to keep it easy and I can’t say I have many recipes. I go with what’s coming out of the garden – lots of cucumbers and squash these days – as well as what’s fresh from our local farm stand – lots of native corn right now. When it comes to fresh vegetables I think simple is best so I generally just steam or grill squash, I lightly steam native corn and then slather it with butter, and as for those cucumbers, I slice them and put them in a bowl with a little bit of vinegar and a lot of pepper. Any of those vegetables dishes make simple and delicious sides for protein like marinated grilled chicken or steak tips or even a simple cheeseburger. I’m not one of those women who is blessed with a man who loves to grill so the cooking still mostly falls on me. And I’m pretty much okay with that. When I’m not? We go out!
Of course, nothing is better in the summer than a homemade blueberry pie with fresh picked local blueberries. The recipe I follow is here and it’s the perfect sweet ending to any meal!
