Abby and Thurgood prepping for a water balloon explosion.
Especially summer fruits...I love fruit and there is something wonderful about in season fruits...it is a small taste of heaven.
One of my best friends, Christine, reminded me of the glousiously unbeatable fruit-sugar-mint combo. She made it for our family get together. Is it possible to have 2 families so close and the best of friends?
Look at her little girl. She is getting so big. Those big eyes have big ideas just waiting for the world to see.
Christine, I have now made this 4 times this summer and love every bite. Thank you for showing me how to embrace simple sweetness.
Small note if you plan to do this and you should...do this while peaches are still in season, and you’ll hardly need the sugar.
12 oz Strawberries (throw in a pint of raspberries for an extra burst of goodness)
1/3 cup mint
1 tbsp sugar
Clean and chop strawberries and peaches. Coarsely chop mint. Combine fruit, sugar and mint in a medium bowl and toss to coat. Serve chilled.
There it is...the taste of summer. Now all I need is some sun sweetened iced tea and a water balloon.
