Savoring summer in Michigan

 

Summertime in Michigan is short and needs to be savored. I’m back in my home state for a month and trying to take in as much as I can without overwhelming myself. While we all have different memories of summer, some things are universal— like food. Fresh berries, outdoor grilling, cold drinks: the flavors of summer.

Here’s what I’ve been up to the past month…

Blueberry bush.

Visiting a blueberry farm and picking your own crop is a great way to spend a summer afternoon. They’re sweeter right off of the bush.
