Can you believe that it's August already?
Ya, me either.
It seems summer was but a fleeting moment, here in one, gone in the next, leaving us SW Washingtonians dreaming about what might have been.
Don't get me wrong, I am extremely grateful for the rainless days. What I am missing in the summertime equation however, is heat. Not triple digit heat like some are experiencing, but the kind of heat that makes you want to tear off the fleece and invest in some new razor blades!
I've lowered my expectations and am now just hoping for an eighty-degree day.
In anticipation of what could be, I spent my Saturday in the kitchen, preparing for the heat that may never come. In my own little "preparedness" program, I made zucchini bread, sourdough tortillas, cookies, Peasant bread/pizza dough, roasted a chicken and some sweet peppers, and shredded enough zucchini to fill several quart-sized bags.
If the heat ever decides to show itself, I'll be ready.
Even if my legs aren't!☺
