In my mind, each season has an atmosphere all its own, and that atmosphere spills over to: the kitchen, touches of beauty and comfort, and our activities. Here is how I am thinking about this summer:
Fun. Free Time. Fresh. Food. Green.
-salsa from the garden
-frosty, fruity, and/or sparkling drinks
Touches of Beauty and Comfort:
-sunflowers on the table and in the windowsill
-cool breezes from open windows
-crisp, cool sheets on balmy summer nights
-did I mention air conditioning?
-evenings on the deck
-resting in the hammock
-beach and lake days
-preserving all that’s homegrown, fresh, and local
