Wow, can you believe it’s August already?! I feel like I’m right in the middle of summer, but school is already back in session and now you can tell the days are certainly a little bit shorter. But there’s still 4 weeks of summer sweetness left, so get to the beach, that hike or camping trip you’ve been thinking about, or just sit outside and enjoy the setting summer sun. Soon enough it’ll be cooler and rainier, and you’ll be glad you have these memories!
This week’s bag is the epitome of a sweet summer day. You’ll be getting italian basil and roma tomatoes, perfect for that caprese salad you’ve been craving for the beginning of your sunset dinner! And you’ll enjoy the string beans and swiss chard, maybe with something wonderful on the grill? Lettuce will provide a perfect cup for your thinly sliced veggies for a healthy light lunch, and finally lilikoi will be the perfect after meal finish, perhaps scooped out and eaten with a papaya. Hope you enjoy those ideas, and if you’re looking for more direction, take a peek at the following recipes. Bon Apetit and make the most out of these summer days!
