There are three things that say summer to me: watermelon, fresh ripe tomatoes and sweet corn. The recipe today has all three items…except the corn. So, I guess technically, it only has two of the best summer ingredients. But, that’s okay because you are going to love it so much that you won’t even miss the corn.
“Lisa: I’m going to become a vegetarian
Homer: Does that mean you’re not going to eat any pork?
Lisa: Yes, dad.
Lisa: All those meats come from the same animal
Homer: Right, Lisa. Some wonderful, magical animal.”
As I look back at the past month and wonder where it went, I see that Yes!Chef! and I have been pretty busy with life type stuff and he hasn’t had a lot of time to cook up a bunch of things for the blog.
If you are on Facebook, I’m sure you have noticed the pictures of food that come complete with recipes. They say things like, “2 Ingredient Frosting”, or “My mom could not believe how easy this Cordon Blue Recipe is”, or “Tastes just like the original Taco Bell Refried Beans.” This Ranch Salad Dressing recipe says, “Best ranch you’ll ever taste and its homemade. Recipe lasts for ever too.” and it is provided by Carla Reid Chatterton.
The headline quote sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? I made that up because I couldn’t find any good peach quotes. And who wouldn’t love someone that brings you 12 perfect peaches? A friend of my youngest son’s showed up the other day to play some video games and he brought us the peaches. I think I will adopt him.
I think love and strawberries go together. After all, you can dip strawberries in chocolate, or drop them into champagne, or slice them up and serve with ice cream drizzled with chocolate. All of these are romantic and put you in the mind for love. And between Yes!Chef! and myself, we have been making quite a few strawberry recipes lately.
