The Perfect Summer Supper

I was just telling my daughter yesterday that I don’t have much interest in food – nothing tastes really good to me.  We have nice meals here at home and eat out twice a week, but lately nothing seems to appeal to me.

Then, this afternoon, we visited two of our local farm markets (Loveland, Ohio) and came home to a simple supper with no recipes that was the best thing I’ve tasted in months:  Bi-Color corn on the cob (my favorite), a wonderful artisan bread with a tomato and parmesan topping, and my favorite Indiana Melon (canteloupe). The sunflowers just added to the beauty of the meal.

  1. Now that’s my kind of meal, Lillian. Love those summer farm stands in Ohio, the best produce ever. Can’t wait to taste some Ohio peaches when there in Sept., hope they are not gone.

  2. Nothing really tastes that good in HOT, HOT weather to me except ICED tea, cantaloupe, and watermelon…and maybe some ice cream. Your meal looks scrumptious! Hope you have a good 4th!

  3. Hot weather seems to make everyone eat less, feel lethargic. Even my cats are too hot, sprawling all day on the hardwood floors.
    Just asked my husband for the location of Loveland–he says we were practically in your backyard a few weeks ago when he delivered a tractor!
