I don't know about you, but summer feels like it has gone by in a flash again this year. There has been a subtle shift in the air, with temperatures in my neck of the woods easing off a bit and the humidity finally breaking. Can I get a "Hallelujah!"? Even though there is still a good month left of official summer, to me there is now a tiny hint of fall in the air. The bonus of the end of summer (okay, OTHER than the kids finally going back to school)? It's still peach season!! So, why not make the most of what's left of it with a beautiful salad that blends the best of both seasons? Sweet summer peaches and hearty sweet potatoes!
Ahhh, summer. There are many reasons why it's my favourite season of the year. Hot days, warm nights, and life just seems to go at a slower pace leaving me with a feeling of having more ease in my life. But do you want to know what my secret favourite thing about summer is? Blueberries baby! Here in Ontario, July and August is wild blueberry season which means on any given day of the week you'll find me with a little purple mustache, purple teeth, purple fingernails and, most certainly purple stains on my light coloured clothing. But who cares? The season is short so my daily goal is to go big or go home. Get 'em while the gettin's good, am I right?
