Happy Wednesday! Hope you all are enjoying your week so far This week for WIAW I’m sharing some of my favorite summer-time things. On that note, can you believe summer is almost over? It feels like it has gone by super fast this year…but then again I think I feel that way every year!
You know what is a great way to cool down on a hot day? A delicious cucumber cocktail! I’ve been ordering them every time I find them and even tried my hand at making one at home! I’ve also been slicing cucumbers to stick in sparkling water for a not-quite-ready-for-a-cocktail refresher.
Cherries are just coming to the end of their season (if they haven’t already) but like the smartie pants that I am I bought millions and millions (seriously, ask my husband-at one point he asked if we were stalking up for the apocalypse!) of cherries at peak season when prices were great and pitted and froze them. <—THAT was a tough job! But totally worth it because I still have loads of cherries at my beckon call. Which is just how I like it.
As much as I love a cool cucumber cocktail on these hot days, something in me has also been really craving this seafood in spicy tomato broth. So I made it. Twice. In one week.
Last but no least…tomatoes!!! I’ve been eating them in all shapes and sizes any way I can get them. I can’t get enough. And looking at all the green tomatoes I have in my garden, it doesn’t look like I’ll have to stop anytime soon!
