Weekend afternoons and evenings spent poolside with family and friends are a treat that only summer can afford and nothing screams summertime-fun more than lemonade. This sweet and tart childhood favorite turned boozy adult cocktail will be your new favorite warm-weather refresher.
As summer slides into fall, I find myself savoring the flavors of the sunny season. I am truly enjoying the last of the peaches, squash and corn until they come again next June. Late summer tomatoes, fresh herbs and citrus fill the final hot weeks. As the days get shorter, I am craving quick and easy meals that are not only light and fresh but feel special and celebratory as we say goodbye to summer.
Among my favorite things about being a kid were the campfires my family built on cool summer evenings. I remember how we would search the yard for the perfect sticks that we would later use to toast fluffy marshmallows. Once their snow-white skins turned golden brown and their insides gooey, we'd sandwich them together with chocolate bars between graham crackers and devour the fire-kissed confections always asking for “s’more.”
Next Saturday is The Peach Truck's (a local Nashville favorite) last shipment of peaches. All summer we have enjoyed fresh gorgeous peaches from The Peach Truck's stands all around town. Now as school starts back, saying goodbye to the peaches is just another reminder that summer is quickly coming to a close.
Invite your friends and family to join around the patio and fire up the grill—it’s grilling season! There’s nothing better than the smell of a grill loaded with food at the end of a hot summer day.
