What’s In Season During the Summer?

Summer Seasonal

You might have guessed as much by now, but I love shopping according to the seasons. When you buy seasonal produce, you not only save money (who wants to spend $10 on blueberries from Chile?) and support local farmers, but you also prepare the best tasting meals since the ingredients are so fresh. Who doesn’t love that?
