Anybody else eat way different in the summer than winter? I know that I do less cooking in the oven in the summer, but there is also the addition of the grill (not so accessible under a foot of snow in the winter) that makes turning on the oven even less desirable. . .
But on my last hot and humid summer run (12 miles on Saturday!), I started thinking about all my favorite summer foods. . .
Big @** salads
Corn on the cob
All berries – I think blueberries are my favorite!! Scott gave me this big plate of fruit for our 4th wedding anniversary.
Anything grilled – teriyaki chicken, brats, hotdogs
Iced caramel skim lattes or macchiato. . .
Ice cold root beer from A&W – complete with a fresh glass from the freezer.
Cold beer from the Leinenkugel’s Brewery
Ice cream –> bonus points if you get a puppy cup for the puppy!
Doughnuts from the Bloomer Bakery while at the Lake
Lemonade –> want the best ever recipe? My mother-in-law makes the best! Check it out here!!
Strawberry shortcake. . . especially this cake version.
Wow – that’s a lot of favorites – no wonder I do so much running in the summer!!
What are some of your summertime food favorites? Do we have any of the same favorites??
And don’t forget to enter my Ellie giveaway for a pair of super cute workout capris!!! Ends tonight at midnight. Good luck.
