Perfect Summer Lunches
and Weeknight Dinners

Hi friends,
As each month draws to a close I find myself entering conversation after conversation where I
and whomever I am talking tosay essentially the same thing. Geez, how has it been (fill in the blank) months of this already? And wow, how much longer? And boy, this is getting old. All true, all kind of moot to say over and over, but somehow also necessary to continue acknowledging the shockingness of it all.
And yet nothing to do but put one foot in front of the other, put one more mask on, and pull out the shopping bags for another run to the market. But the market is looking pretty great this time of year, so if you’re lucky enough to be selecting the most perfect tomatoes or the most fragrant basil, then that’s a situation worth appreciating amidst it all. Might as well appreciate the things we can, right? And re: produce: You might want to check out How to Dry or Dehydrate Summer Produce.
Also, this: There are a little over two months before the presidential election takes place, and before we get into the food, I’m going to remind everyone to grab possibly your most important right as American citizens and figure out your voting plan. Get that absentee ballot. Figure out how you can get to the polls. (Maybe become a poll worker, if you feel it’s safe for you?) Just vote like your life depends on it. Cause it kind of feels like it does.
Now, who’s ready for some recipes? 

During these past months, I have become a big fan of a perfect sandwich.  Sandwiches are awesome for some pretty obvious reasons: They use up leftovers in a new way, they are immensely satisfying when done right, they are endlessly versatile. Here, a creamy avocado spread turns a chicken sandwich into a lunch to remember (and the bacon doesn't hurt).

Speaking of leftovers, the next time pulled pork enters your world, save some for these simple and truly satisfying cheesy pork quesadillas. If sandwiches are king, then quesadillas are queen, or some other beautiful nonbinary royalty.

How to make the best, most refreshing, and absolutely beautiful soup of summer. With step-by-step instructions and photos. I made a bucket of this last week to bring to a friend's and was happy to have a way to use up some of the pile of tomatoes that were getting a little soft around the edges.

One of the classic steakhouse sides is a tomato salad of some sort. The best ones are super simple and really focus on perfect, ripe tomatoes, which of course is pretty timely. If you steam up some corn, throw a steak on the grill, and make this salad, you will have late August bliss in about 20 minutes.

Do you like cilantro? Me, too, though not everyone in my family shares my affection. But if you have cilantro lovers in your house, make this. Five ingredients, stupidly easy, amazingly flavorful. A terrific year-round weeknight chicken recipe.

A custardy cake studded with berries and topped with poofs of whipped cream. Use 'em or lose 'em (the berries, I mean).
