Somehow we are already two weeks into August and I still have so many hamburgers to eat before I can wave farewell to this summer.
Back when the season was just beginning I declared that this would be the Summer of Pie. It was a declaration that would take a lot of butter and crust-weaving to fulfill but the conquest was just too tempting to resist.
These Raspberry Apple Hand Pies were an irresistible beginning to the season. Hand pies are a favorite of mine and these particular pies are extra delightful. I love the combination of apples and raspberries.
This Rhuberry Pie was a pleasant surprise. My low expectations were surpassed and rhubarb has quickly become a much-favored ingredient.
I also got a little obsessed with cheese and melon this summer. This muskmelon salad with aged gouda is ridiculously addicting. I love the combination of lime and sweet, ripe melon.
Watermelon happens to pair wonderfully with a peppery Romano. This salad is the perfect addition to any picnic.
This Lemon Mint Sherbet is creamy and refreshing. This is the time to put our ice cream makers to good use.
We have a few more weeks of this season and I am trying enjoy every minute of them! Happy Summer, I hope your week is filled with lemonade and hamburgers.
