On My Mind

August, O August

The scorching temps have been soul-crushing and took a bit of the joy out of July. I look forward to a quiet August with family, friends, and lots of fresh veggies. Zucchini noodles, roasted corn salad, lobster rolls, fruit crumbles, and grilled everything is on the menu. And my favorite summer drink: sparkling lemonade, Perrier, and a splash of limoncello. Cheers!

  • All of my favorites too. The drink sounds refreshing – will be trying that!

  • A lot of ‘sparkling’ going on. Sounds like a perfect summer drink! I can’t wait to try it.

  • It has been brutal hasn’t it and the high temps have not translated to more tomatoes so I’m scratching my head. These recipes are all so good with lobster rolls my absolute favourite summer treat. Thank you for a new to me recipe. My summer (alcoholic) drink this year is vodka, St Germain, lime juice and Perrier. Non is Perrier and lime although husband loves your lemonade version.

  • What a wonderful August list! I want to try your Limonade and SueM’s St. Germain drinks! I would add to the list the homely stuffed tomatoes for a cool and easy dinner and my favorite fruit dessert, peach cobbler. The peaches have been exceptional this year I think! Happy summer days!

  • I always have zero luck with zucchini spirals. They’re always so mushy & watery, and I’ve tried just about every internet method. Wish mine would look like that delicious photo!
