Every Friday, the fine folk over at The Daily Post issue a weekly photo challenge. This weeks challenge is Summer.
Summer. Where you live, summer might be arriving soon, or (if you’re in the southern hemisphere), a fleeting memory. But what signifies summer to you?
Summer to me is about two things. Food and the outdoors. Lets explore food here and the outdoors on my enviro blog!
Summer fruits are divine. Who can pass up blueberries, raspberries and mangoes? In this household, we adore summer fruits with pancakes and tend to eat them quite frequently. Hmmm, pancakes!
Salads are a gorgeous summer meal. Light but healthy, they typify summer for me. Here, a quiche accompanies a light salad (left) and a grilled chicken salad with mango (right) is sure to tempt.
As summer draws to a close and the mango season has run its course, figs come into the spotlight. I’ve loved featuring figs in my cooking this year with a delicious fig poached in galliano dessert (left) and this gorgeous fig and goats cheese tart (right).
Ahhhh summer…. how I miss you and lament your absence as I steel myself for winters bite!
For my regular readers, the photo on my enviro blog The Environmental Rhi-Source are different from the post here!
