Summer has officially arrived, peeps! Which means…
Well, actually I’m wondering what do you think of when you think about summer? Do you usually do any activities specific for this season? Please share, let’s expand each other’s bucket list 🙂
As for me, summer is always about fruits. Here in California fruits are in abundance all year long, but back in my Ukrainian childhood it definitely wasn’t like that. The only fruits we could get in winter were bananas and oranges, but when summer came — that was THE time! First two strawberries of the season were sweeter than any candy in the store and cherries eaten right from the tree… oh my, I still remember their taste!
There were downsides to this fairytale though. In order to get tasty fruits, you needed to work in the garden. And I didn’t like doing that. Looking back, I think there might be a lesson my parents embedded into this activity: if you want anything in life, you have to work to have it. If such, I believe I’ve got the lesson! 🙂
Okay, enough talking about my childhood, let’s get back to the cooking stuff. Summer tart anyone?
