August Fare

WSJ

August is my favorite month for food. Not only is our garden producing madly, I have the time to fully focus on what we eat.

Lobsters– I am a lobster roll fanatic– trying and rating them as I travel around the Northeast is actually a hobby of mine. This summer we’ve had even more lobster than usual, so I’ve strayed beyond my New England roots and embraced (wholeheartedly) the lobster taco thanks to an article in the WSJ.

Grass-fed– I felt quite smug when I read about the benefits of grass-fed beef and dairy, also in the WSJ. When my girls were younger, I went to a nutritionist and she encouraged me to buy grass-fed, but it was hard to find 6 years ago.  Fortunately, it’s now more readily available.

Gazpacho– Our garden overfloweth with cucumbers, but the tomatoes are very late. So I was thrilled to find both green and red gazpacho recipes in the NYT.

Jones Beach– I’m on the sound which is beautiful, but the beaches are rocky and we don’t often swim. Every summer, my friend and I talk about taking the kids to Jones Beach but it never comes together. Now that SmorgasBar: Brooklyn by the Beach, the L.I. cousin of the famed outdoor markets Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg, has opened a Jones Beach outpost selling locally sourced and artisnal foods, I’m even more inspired to go.

  • I love chilled soups – gazpacho, cucumber, melon. Some of the ones you posted sound really good.

  • I’m making some zucchini/buttermilk soup to chill for lunch tomorrow. Love chilled soup in the summer.
