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…
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.
My favorite summertime fruit: strawberries.
Something light, for a hot summer day: Veggie wrap from The Clean Plate, in Macomb County.
Ypsilanti-brewed kambucha beer and rice & chickpeas from a food truck in Bill’s Beer Garden, Ann Arbor. (Food courtesy of Mark’s Carts.)
Vegan sushi at Om Cafe in Ferndale.
