Food in the summer time is so good! And easy on the pocketbook too.
A delicious summer time meal was these grilled pork chops, corn on the cob and squash.

These cucumbers and squash are washed and waiting to be eaten. I like to peel and slice a couple of cucumbers, place them in a small, shallow dish with a little vinegar. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on top and you've got a delicious fresh vegetable to snack on while cooking your meal.
Now is the time to take advantage of all those fresh veggies and fruits, while they are available. Between what we grow and what we are given, we usually can't even eat it all.
What's your favorite summer food?
