It’s July and the best time ever to buy food! Farmer Markets are amazing of course and a feast for the eyes as well as the belly but even the local grocery is bursting with yummy things in season.
I know you can get most fruits and veggies all year long in the grocery store but then they’re trucked in from who knows where. But now...it’s local yummy all the way.
My fave summer thing is watermelon. I keep watermelon in the fridge all summer long. I get hungry and go whack off a chunk for an instant snack.
Then there’s the corn. I just love corn on the cob. I have my fave oven recipe below if you want to give it a go. I cook up a dozen ears and have them on hand all week long. Ears with yellow and white together are the best IMHO.
And of course there are homegrown tomatoes. A tomato sandwichis amazing. No need for bacon, just cut up a tomato and add a smear of mayo and there’s nothing better. My daughter grows tomatoes in with her flowers so
So what about you? Do you have a fave summer fruit or veggie? One you look forward to each summer? Do you grow your own fruits or veggies? Got a fave summer recipe to share?
Oven corn on the cob
Shuck the corn, smear with butter, put on a piece of foil. Add garlic salt, sprinkle of oregano, basil, parmesan cheese. Roll up and wrap tight and bake at 400 for 30 min. Simply delish!
