I just had to share this yummy lunch that I made today. I made up a big batch of fresh fruit salad and it was just so pretty I had to share. I also had some mixed nuts, strawberry yogurt, and hot tea with a squeeze of fresh lime. I love summer foods, especially salads of any kind. Everything is so fresh, cool and crisp. Reminds me of summers as a child, we rarely cooked during the summer as there were no air conditioners in every home back then. We would get up in the morning and head outside after a quick bite to eat, then play all day until lunch time. Lunch was usually PB&J with chips and a great big frosty glass of milk. Then back outside to play again. Everyone played outside back then, building forts, catching bugs, playing Cops and Robbers, or Cowboys and Indians. We all knew that we would have to be in our own yards when the street lights came on, but we also knew that we could still play outside catching lightning bugs and playing kick the can and all the other fun night time games. Then it was a quick dinner, usually salads with bread and butter and cold cuts, and another big glass of yummy milk, and jello or pudding for desert. Then it was bath time, a bit of TV with the folks and bed.
Anyways, thank you so much for sharing my lunch with me, and taking a bit of a trip down memory lane.
