It's getting close...

Can't you just smell summer in the air? The weather is warmer (thank goodness!), the days are longer, and everyone seems just a little more carefree. I'm so ready for the days of grilling, eating outside, and fresh produce.

When those days come, my oven rarely makes an appearance in the preparation of our meals. It just gets too hot. We had our first mostly-not-cooked-in-the-oven dinner tonight, and it was delightful. There are no recipes here - just excited to think about the months to come and how yummy summer foods really are. I mean, really - what I wouldn't give for a quality tomato and some fresh okra right about now...

Shrimp was cooked on the grill, risotto in the bread maker, green beans in the microwave (thank you, Steamfresh), and bread cooked quickly in my small oven.
