Welcome to the Kitchen On Wellington
Let’s Get Back To the Basics…
It’s finally warm and summer is on its way! There is something so special about long warm days, hot sticky nights and fruits and vegetable being at their peak freshness. I am mean how great is it that corn is in abundance, tomatoes are ripe, mangoes are sweet and so juicy and cucumbers taste like the epitome of freshness.
The summer season allows us time to pause, take a deep breath, relax and let our hair down (or braid it up, if you’re anything like me!). We take time to explore new places and we get back to the basics with our food! We skip the fussy foods and opt for those are that fresh, and remind us of the best of times. We run to our local farmer’s markets and stock pile the greenest of greens and all of the fresh deeply colored vegetables that we can find.
This summer, I plan to fully take advantage of the season’s bounty. I want to focus on eating as many fresh foods that I can get my hands on. Be sure to check in often and follow me on all of my platforms (blog, Instagram, Pinterest) so that you can check out what I’ll be making. I also what to know how you guys are planning to spend your summer. What are your favorite summer recipes, and what is that one food that just epitomizes summer for you? (For me, its cold pasta salad drenched in good dressing and overloaded with broccoli and Salad Supreme) Reach out and let me know!
Enjoy The Weather!
