Well, then, get on it, if you can, but stay focused for a sec, here. Do a little gut check. A literal one:
HAVE YOU EATEN ALL THE AMAZING SUMMER FOOD?
Have you walked through a farmer’s market recently? It’s like walking through a Benetton circa 1992, with everything organized by color. It’s a rainbow of fruit (and vegetable) flavor out there. Everything is fairly shimmering with awesomeness.
So here’s the list. The top 10. Have you REALLY gotten your fill of:
1. Corn on the Cob
2. Peach Ice Cream
Lots of folks have it right now. Look for it. Or make your own. But peaches are damn dreamy at the moment almost everywhere.
3. Grilled Steak

It’s pretty good when you treat it right indoors. But outside, with proper grill marks? It’s a freakin’ marvel.
4. Summer Fruit Cocktails
