Summer’s Last Hurrah
September 2, 2011
Okay, I know that technically summer doesn’t end until September 23rd (23rd? good thing I looked it up, since my whole life I’ve assumed that all new seasons started on the 21st or 22nd). But despite the fact that I have been out of school for many, many years (darn it!), to me summer still ends with Labor Day Weekend. It was always the last big neighborhood get together when I was in in elementary school, the last weekend before classes really got serious in college, and is still the last major barbeque of the year. But fortunately, fall is a great time for produce, so it doesn’t mean the end of local vegetables and fruit in the least. I definitely look forward to the stuff that will start showing up at the Farmers’ Market during the fall months.
I’m going to be taking a 5-6 day hiatus from my blog during the weekend and early next week, but I’m quite certain that I will have some great things to post about when I resume. And, I look forward to all of the wonderful food that fall brings (I always start thinking about pumpkin pie spices and warm stews when I think of fall. Yummm…)
