Bringing Back An Old Fashioned Summer
Here's my newest bit of inspiration...
I'm tired of wasting summer complaining about how hot it is, how badly we need rain, and various other whines that go on and on. This morning as I stood in line at the grocery, I found myself anticipating the aroma of charcoal smoke and the taste of grilled steak. And that's when it hit me. I spend entirely too much time complaining about what I dislike about summer, but no pleasure at all in what is good about the season.
The scene above is just one example, a gathering of friends and family around a pool with a picnic meal. So let's explore summer together. I'll share recipes of summer favorites and posts now and then, or just photos, of fun things that I enjoyed from childhood summers and maybe, just maybe, we can find our way back to enjoying this season. What do you say? Who wants to join me in bringing back the pleasures of an old fashioned summer? If you find yourself moved to share a memory when a photo, recipe, or post comes up feel free to share in the comments section. I'd love to hear how you remember summer, too.
