Nothing says summer like basil. Or peaches. Or figs. Or tomatoes. Well, you get the picture. Summer brings us such a bonanza of fruits, herbs, vegetables. Everything tastes juicier, fresher... oh so succulent! Whether you bite into a ripe tomato or a peach, it feels like such a complete indulgence.
So this last weekend, we went to the Sandy Springs Farmers Market and got home a big bunch of basil among other things. I made a batch of pesto. What you see below is lunch today. Sandwich flats and mozzarella came from Trader Joes, tomatoes from Harrys Farmers Market (I ensured that the variety I picked came from Tennessee - no more West Coast produce for me!), freshly ground black pepper.
Summer is fleeting; Fall is almost here. Let's celebrate the remaining days of this magical season!
