    CHERRIES. I buy them by the bulk. I mean, I love all fruits (especially in the summer because they always seem so much more appealing then) but cherries are my absolute favorite.

    And peaches! And nectarines! And mango! And watermelon! And grapes!

    I also love grilled peaches.

    And grilled shish kebabs with either chicken or beef chuck with lots of veggies. Mmm!

    Ever had a grilled beer brat, blackened and blistering hot, with a side of fresh picked corn, dipped in melted butter, and an ice cold beer with water drops still on the bottle? It is summer nirvana.

    Peaches and apricots. And ice cream (but that's an all year food).

    I just picked 5 HUGE leaves of fresh spinach, chopped them up with a zucchini and saute'd them (haha I say them), with spices some gornay cheese, some hunks of tomatoes on the side with some HUGE @$$ strawberries cut up.

    I ate like 900 grams of watermelon the other weekend. Some of it was mixed with vodka. I don't want any more for the rest of the summer.

    haha I was fine with the alcohol. It was the watermelon that was a bit much. It was the first time I had eaten fruit in months and months too.

    I love a nice toasted ciabatta bread with sliced mozzerella, sliced tomato and a dollop of basil pesto. So tasty and refreshing on a hot summer day.

    anyone that types dollop is amazing in my book! I have taken ciabatta bread, sliced long ways, paint with olive oil and put in oven until a light crust, light cream cheese spread over it, then take smoked salmon and lay on top. Top with shaved parmesan cheese and in oven until cheese melts. Slice it and mmm heaven!
