    I was thinking about the things that make summer summer, and a big part of that is food.

    What food makes your summer? What's your favorite summer recipe?

    For me, it's lemonade and key lime cream pie (which contains neither key limes nor cream, but it's still really good!).

    Lemonade

    1 Cup Lemon Juice
    1 Cup Sugar
    6 1/2 Cups Water

    Mix the Lemon Juice and Sugar together until the Sugar is dissolved. Add water. Pour over ice and drink.

    The original recipe is a little sweet for me (I like my lemonade pretty tart) so I cut out about a quarter cup of sugar, and adjust the water. Plus, I like the pulp so I always use fresh squeezed lemons. Bruised mint or berry puree is good mixed with lemonade, too.

    Key Lime Cream Pie

    Frozen Minute Maid Limeaid Concentrate
    One tub of coolwhip (whatever kind you like..reduced fat, whatever)
    One can sweetened condensed milk
    premade graham cracker crust

    Mix first 3 ingredients until smooth. Pour into crust. Stick in freezer until firm. Eat.

    I'm all about quick and easy when it comes to desserts.

    Yummy, Key Lime pie. My first taste was also my first trip to WDW. I was hooked! ! I buy the Key Lime juice and follow the recipe on the bottle. Beer in the "****" chicken is summer for me or for that matter any charcoal grilled junk. I'm the BBQer.

    For me it's anything cooked on the grill.

    Hamburgers with nice ripe tomatoes on potatoe rolls are a summer delight.

    For me the ultimate summer food is a tomato sandwich!

    1 ripe home-grown tomato, sliced
    2 slices wheat bread
    1 slice american cheese
    mayo
    salt and pepper

    slap it together, gobble it down. repeat as necessary. my mouth is watering!!!

    Oh the joys of summer!:Pinkbounc

    Nothing better than chicken kabobs on the grill, home made red potato salad, home made baked beans, corn on the cobb and top it off with my frozen peanut butter pie.

    :cool: Now that I'm starving, I'm off to the grocery store and start my cooking!

    Enjoy your weekend everyone.
