I consider anything after Labor Day to be firmly planted in Fall, which means we are now entering the very last week of Summer. This summer has been a particularly good one. I have found that I can’t mother well and blog well at the same time, and this summer I chose mothering. We spent a lot of time reading, playing, swimming, relaxing, and eating ice cream and popcorn. We played with cousins, had friends over for barbecues, went to the movies, and just generally enjoyed being together. It was really delightful/enjoyable/rejuvenating/amazing/all the good adjectives, and will go down in the books as a truly epic summer.
Even though summer is coming to a close, there’s still time to enjoy delicious summer foods. Corn and tomatoes are just beginning to hit their stride, and delicious peaches, summer squash, and berries can still be found locally. I created this simple Summer Berry Fool recipe earlier this summer for the most recent issue of Eugene Magazine. It only has 6 ingredients and is easy and beautiful, a great end-of-summer dessert.
