Some quintessientially summer pictures that I had to share...
a lovely heirloom tomato BLAT with basil mayo
(bacon, lettuce, arugula, tomato)

kegs, cases, & cans

Driving home for lunch a few weeks ago, I saw this: an overturned tractor trailer of Coors Light. Do you think all of those made it to the trash heap?

farmer's market find

Quite possibly the best farmstead cheese I've tasted: Bonnie Blue's Cave-Aged Camembert--soft, 'shroomy, and silky. This ain't feta, folks.

And the cocktail...

Lem'onade Motlow-Style

These are certainly the dog days of summer--burning, bright, and drippingly humid. Lem'onade Motlow-Style will either cool you down or make you hazy enough to ignore your discomfort.

3/4 cup raw sugar

2--4"stalks of rosemary, washed

1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Jack Daniels

  • Add sugar and rosemary to a two-quart pitcher and muddle them with a wooden spoon to release the rosemary's oils.
  • Next, add the lemon juice and stir until the sugar dissolves fully.
  • Add water to the two-quart mark.
  • To each tumbler, add ice.
  • According to taste, add one to two shots of Jack Daniels per glass.
  • Fill with rosemary-lemonade and enjoy.
