|Peach Shortbread from Smitten Kitchen|
It's supposed to be much cooler here in DC this holiday weekend than it has been, oh, for the last 90 days. All the same, I am going to indulge in a few beloved summer foods before everyone starts proclaiming FALL IS HERE and posting about squash and nutmeg and apples and so forth.
1) Gazpacho. I have never made Gazpacho, though I love love love love it. I always order it if it is available. And I don't really see why I cannot make some of my own, especially since the tomatoes have been so incredibly delicious this year. I think I'll try this lovely, simple version from Sassy Radish.
2) Yes. I am still obsessed with peaches. Believe me--it surprised me as much as it shocks you. But, come over for brunch on Sunday, and you might get a few of these tasty Peach Shortbread Bars, from Smitten Kitchen (above), and you will be glad I am obsessed.
3) It's been a month at least since I've made ice cream. I have some clotted cream and some yogurt in the fridge, so I'll whip some sweet corn ice-cream up. It's extraordinary.
4) I am also going to fry up some hotdogs. Just sayin'.
Have a great holiday weekend!
