This weekend I sauteed some yellow squash with onions and tomatoes. We ate it with brown rice and fresh corn on the cob.<br><br><br><br>
Yum! What is your perfect summer meal?

Really, really fresh corn on the cob, briefly boiled, with melting butter on it.<br><br><br><br>
Ripe ripe homegrown tomatoes, sliced thick.<br><br><br><br>
Cucumber raita salad made the way I make it, with the cukes cut in big chunks, in organic yogurt, and with black mustard seeds popped in a little oil stirred in.<br><br><br><br>
And a pitcher of ice water.

fruit salad: made with as many kinds of fruit as possible<br><br><br><br>
Tomato salad: tomato, avocado, cucumber, onion, mozzerilla cheese, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Served with some crusty bread. Yum Yum Yum!!<br><br><br><br>
These work even better if the said ingrediants are purchased at a farmer's market or harvested fresh out of a garden.
