Hello, hello…Thursday already? I know I’ve said this a hundred times, but our days REALLY blend together nowadays. It will be August before we know it.
Last night, we had a quintessential summer meal:
A big spinach salad, topped with grilled shrimp, grilled corn, avocado, and goat cheese. Didn’t even need dressing!
Fresh, sweet corn is always a big signifier of summer for me. The first time I *really* had corn was in grad school in Indiana—I’d obviously eaten corn before that, but I had no idea that it could taste SO good. My parents drove up to help me move into my new digs, and we all visited the local farmers’ market together. We bought some corn, and were blown away by just how good it was. In fact, my parents bought a bunch to take back home to give to their friends…and they ended up just eating all of it themselves! We still laugh about that.
What summer food are you looking forward to?
