Picked & Plucked…Fresh from the Farms

Leave a comment

This week it’s all about the food.  We are eating melons, plums, tomatoes, zucchini, and eggplant in the Skill It kitchen.  We are soaking up the sun in the final weeks of summer.

It’s a busy time of year as we scramble to find the time to relax.  We prepare for vacations, pack up the kids, drive for hours and hours (sometimes through heavy traffic) in the hopes that we will unwind.

I heard a comedian recently say something like:

“going in vacation is just eating in a place we’ve never been before.” 

This is true, if for no other reason than our need to eat about 3 times a day, everyday.

For me, this is an invitation to explore what’s fresh, unique, and local wherever you find yourself.  Let your taste buds guide you through your vacation and stop at the roadside farm you pass by on the highway.

Incorporate a summer picnic into your vacation…there are fewer finer pleasures than eating in the fresh air and sunshine.

What about you?

Where are you going this summer?

And most importantly, what are you eating?
