Happy July! It’s hard to believe we are this far into summer! Our garden can tell though! It’s hot and humid and everything in it is growing at a riotous speed! We are seeing the first of our early producing tomatoes and we are gathering in cukes in basket fulls! We like to eat out of the garden so you just might see me early in the morning or late in the evening picking weeds and lots of produce! Here’s what’s on the menu this week…
I think pasta and sundried tomatoes are a match made in heaven! We will eat the leftovers for lunches. Oh, YUM!
I’m in hog heaven since our Whole Foods opened this week. We even have a fishmonger! Yes, I hear it is called whole paycheck but all I know is I LOVE the quality of their food!

This is one of my favorite foodie posts from my early days as a blogger. I’ve revamped the recipe and made it a whole lot easier! I think this just might be the perfect summer dessert!
