summer's passing so quicklyyyyyy!

i got two bags of grapes the last time we were at the grocery store b/c i cannot stop eating them! they're so plump and sweet.

when i was younger, my family would go to our local bike path [which used to be a train track] && pick ice cream buckets full of black raspberries. it's one of my favorite memories. i've been back twice within the last week or so. this is one batch.

we froze some which i will use in smoothies after awhile. i eat them plain. and i have been concocting various recipes. this one is simply toast with some orange jelly and a pile of raspberries.

and this one looks completely disgusting and could have been photographed better if i had waited to put the black raspberry vinaigrette on it. anyway, this probably sounds revolting, but the stir fry i made has broccoli, onion, cauliflower, and jalapeno peppers in it. the sauce is lemon juice, onion salt, 1 clove garlic, a bit of olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette and white wine vinegar with a couple handfuls of berries all mixed up in the food processor. it was really yummy, except the seeds are somewhat difficult to eat.

i love edamamme [not sure if i spelled that right?]. LOVE IT. like, i am addicted. i started eating it on salads at ruby tuesdays and then decided i needed to buy some at the store. so i did. and i ate two bags of it within 2 days. i could eat it everyday for the rest of my life.

The families are out now in Virginia that pick the wild berries alongside the road. I am fortunate that I can pick on my own property cuz it is some kinda hawt outside and I can't pick too long.

it is getting very hot here as well! we used to have them in our yard too, but for some reason always made the trek to the path. a family outing of sorts i suppose! :)
