It feels like summer has finally arrived in the Pacific Northwest. The weather has been warm, the local produce has hit the farmers’ markets and stands, and we’ve been busy making jam and pickles!
This week the menu plan is simple, with lots of fresh local ingredients (gotta enjoy them while they are here) and a special weekend birthday for my husband. I am still trying to decide on an appropriate special occasion dessert. I want something a bit nicer than the typical birthday cake; I am thinking of a cherry tart or something peach. Any ideas?
I hope everyone takes the time this week to enjoy the sunshine, a good book, and a glass of lemonade!
