The weather is warmer and that means a lot of my favorite produce is in season! You know this means flavor!! No more summer fruits in winter that taste bland, it’s time for bright colors and full, juicy flavor. With summer holidays right around the corner I decided it was time to start creating some new fresh ideas for backyard BBQ’s and holiday celebrations such as Memorial Day and Fourth of July.
We walked into Bakers the other day and were reminded of the awesomeness that is fresh produce this time of year. Right up front they had watermelon samples! The girls love to enjoy watermelon cut into triangle slices, so they weren’t disappointed. Me, I wasn’t disappointed because the color was beautiful and the flavor matched. Yes, it’s time for summer. Watermelon, in the cart. Perfect snack for the kids to munch on while waiting for the grill to heat up their brats. That’s right, my kids want no part of hotdogs, just bring on the brats!
