How was your 4th of July ? Mine was great. As I mentioned yesterday, I did the most American thing possible and spent time with a veteran who just returned from deployment in the most southern of all the states Virginia* while day drinking American (craft) beer while it poured outside.
*brb while Beth murders me because she is somehow under the impression Virginia is not in the South. Also, ask her how she feels about North Carolina.*
It was a fabulous patriotic weekend in a gorgeous little southern town which had me thinking about my favorite parts of the summer. Of, course, I’m talking about food.
Yes, yes, summer vacationing is nice. I did just get back from Costa Rica:

And I am SO excited to be going to Comic Con in 15 days.
But the very best part about the summer, to me, is the food.
If you’re #blessed to live in a place that grows great tomatoes and greens all year long, maybe you don’t appreciate the deliciousness of summer like I do. (There is nothing, I mean NOTHING, like an August tomato salad!)
There is just something about food in the summer that brings me back to my childhood, makes me feel great and more energized, despite having the same hectic schedule I keep October through April, and just screams “HEY, IT’S SUMMER! Stay up a little later! Drink that extra beer! Enjoy another scoop of ice cream!”
This weekend we had the quintessential summer meal in Virginia: Blue crabs and corn (and some shrimp); Plus I made caprese salad.
We hammock-ed, We fire-worked. We drank. We slept, and we ate!
All that doing nothing on the perfect summer holiday weekend was exhausting. Thankfully we had the pick me up from International Delight’s line of Iced Coffee for those moments!
Coffee? Hammock? Crabs? Ice Cream? Fireworks? Beer? Okay, all those things didn’t happen at once, but all happened, multiple times, all weekend long!
Last year I shared my favorite cold brew coffee recipe. But International Delight now makes it easy with their line of Iced Coffee featuring 3 delicious flavors: Mocha (Regular and Light), Vanilla and the one I brought for us to enjoy this weekend, Caramel Macchiato (Regular and Light). Sign up for the ID Newsletter and get a coupon for the coffee!
