SUMMER FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
Can you guess what my favorite summer fruit is? It's green on the outside and red on the inside. It's sweet and very juicy. And it's pictured above. I just LOVE watermelon. The fragrance makes my mouth water. It's so refreshing on a hot day. Yumm...
One of the things I love about summer is the fresh fruit. Besides watermelon I love cantaloupe and honeydew also. (Although I don't like them quite as much as watermelon.)
I am not a berry person. I dislike most berries. But I do love my strawberries. And some blueberries even sneak in there now and then.
The other day I made a salad and put strawberries in it. I had never done that before and was a little hesitant, but it turned out good.
I love the summer tomatoes also. There is nothing like a Jersey tomato to tell you summer is here. Juicy, flavorful, it tastes like a tomato is supposed to taste like. I hope I get to a farmer's market soon to get some.
What's your favorite summer fruit or veggie?
