1.) Corn on the cob! Who can get through summer without savoring some corn on the cob! Since we are in Illinois, we can enjoy wonderful, freshly picked ears! Want to change it up? Delish has some unique combinations to try out including wrapping in bacon!
2.) Watermelon! A hot summer day just begs for a cool wedge of watermelon! Sitting at the edge of a dock, feet dangling in water, savoring a slice of watermelon--divine! Looking for a switch-up? How about grilling watermelon like Serious Eats did!
3.) Tomatoes! It took us awhile to experience real summer weather. Now that it is here, those tomatoes in the garden should be ripening up! Great on sandwiches and burgers and in salads too! Need inspiration? Southern Living has quite the collection of recipes including Fried Green Tomatoes, of course!
4.) Grilled Food! Doesn't matter if it is barbecue chicken, burgers or portabella mushrooms--grilling in the summer is a must! Looking for an interesting grilled combo? Delish has some interesting ideas including Grilled Chicken Mac and Cheese Pizza!
5.) Ice Cream! Enough said........
We hope that you are having an amazing summer!
