Mid-summer in the south

It’s the best time of year to eat and to cook for others. Grilling and smoking outdoors. Fresh tomatoes, basil, peaches, berries, melons, beans, sweet corn, cucumbers and squashes at the farmer’s markets and in friends’ gardens. Even my tiny container garden is putting out too many chilis, herbs and tomatoes to eat. The best time of year for cooking, but also for no-cook and cold dinners with fresh salads, fruits and veggies.
