    Every summer growing up we went on family vacations to Ocean city Maryland. We went out to dinner. I would be drooling for all kinds of seafood Marylsnd crans, shrimp... I'm plant based now I still like fish( I have it occasionally but very rarely)

    Dad used to also grill salmon trout and tuna steak too....😋

    Cherries! Peaches! Nectarines! Any stone fruit really. And I just got some in a produce box from a Farmers Market today!

    And SmartPop because it's my camping around the fire junk food.

    I haven't had one since I was 13, but toasted marshmallows and s'mores. 😋

    P.S. Thirteen was DECADES ago.

    Haha, I was thinking about toasted marshmallows the other day and regretted not having a grill. But then I found out you can simply broil them in the oven. Ooh, I may have a problem. ;)

    I may have made more s'mores than anything else in my toaster oven... Maybe.

    I only associate one type of seafood with summer.

    We'd go to the seaside in the summer and they had fried anchovies everywhere. Never saw them anywhere else and never went there except in summer, so they taste like summer (and vacation) to me B)

    Oh no, I never thought of s'mores in the air fryer, that could really be dangerous! I've been going overboard with making peanut butter tacos, peanut butter in a tortilla with a bit of honey and cinnamon and doubt I'm using one serving of peanut butter!

    The thing I'm enjoying the most right now are summer fruits and vegetables, can't wait for the good heirloom tomatoes! I just finished a nectarine and a white peach, they definitely remind me of summer. I garden and basil definitely makes me think of summer. My farmer's market boxes have been awesome this year!

    Grill. Each and every day.... rain permitting of course.
  • River314River314 Member Posts: 63 Member Member Posts: 63 Member
    Cantaloupe, peaches, fresh corn on the cob, tomatoes right off the vine, cucumber, grilled anything. I love the smell of the grill going. The other day a co-worker brought cherry tomatoes from his garden, and they were the best I'd had!

    Strawberries and cream, 100%.
    Pimms and lemonade
    A pint of cider, with a glass full of ice
    Frozen margaritas
    ...maybe I drink too much in the summer?!
