Knowing the long, hot days are waning makes me savor the small moments of glorious summer abandon all the more. The bright, saturated colors, the sweet, soft fruit, the crab…oh the crab, the romps and the hikes.
We’ve been making a concerted effort to fill every remaining summer weekend with something special. Last weekend it was a trip to Portland to visit my brother. A long walk through the city delivered a classic British car show.
…and nearly doughnuts. Damn you cash-only.
Ah, will I miss the cherries when they’re gone. Until next year my beauties.
The discovery of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust has returned that glorious dish to our table. Glory hallelujah, and layer on more sun-dried tomatoes.
The thicket of raspberries on the farm has produced more than can be eaten this year. Though we did do our best.
I should have kept a tally of the crabs cracked this summer.
And speaking of crab, I’ve found new summer favorite: fresh pesto and crab quinoa pasta.
Summer, you done good.
