It’s that time of year again; the grills are out, the farmers markets are open, and friends and family are getting together to celebrate the season. It’s the perfect time for easy, fresh food, and I thought the below recipes were worth re-posting. Here are a few of the things I find most delicious in the summer time. Add to these a nice cold beer or glass of bubbly, a steamed and buttered lobster, and some raw oysters, and you have my perfect summer feast. I am very excited about June. I have my annual girls’ weekend at the Cape (Go UMASS!) next weekend, and we are finishing the month off with a family trip to Sanibel Island. Get me to the beach!
Feel free to leave your favorite summer recipes or wines in the comments. Have a fabulous weekend!
Corn coated in butter and sriracha, a la Myers + Chang is also an amazing corn option.
A Summery Rum Cocktail – When you need a fun and fruity cocktail, this Brugal rum based drink is easy and delicious. You also can’t go wrong with one of my favorites, the Dark & Stormy.
Caprese skewers – It doesn’t get much easier, and this no-cook treat makes it easy to beat the heat!
Watermelon Gazpacho with Feta – Another no-cook delight
Heirloom Tomato Panzanella – heirloom tomato season is pure heaven! I know they won’t be around for awhile, but tuck this one away for those first heirlooms.
Happy sort of Summer!
