taste of summer

Although I'm not a fan of super-hot, humid weather, there are many things I love about Summer.

Tomatoes from the garden.
Fresh corn on the cob.
Steaks and veggies on the grill.
Lazy days in the pool.
Cooling off with a cold beer or lemonade, iced tea, margaritas or mojitos.
Blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

Yesterday, this lucky girl got to enjoy all of those except the pool. Speaking of which, the month of June is almost gone and I've not been in the pool once. I must remedy that situation immediately.

As I was coming home from running a few errands, I noticed a truck by the road selling freshly picked blackberries. I do love blackberries so I stopped for a gallon and quickly ran home to whip up some cobbler. It was divine! Today, I plan to make some blackberry jam with the leftover berries.

**What do you love about Summer?**


  1. man that looks good - did you have ice cream too - just make me drool. Love the new blog look too!

  2. Delicious! I'm sure the jam will be wonderful too.

    I love the cool of early summer mornings and that there seems to be lass washing to do with fewer clothes being worn.


comments make me happy!
