Wishcasting Wednesday


Just yesterday, I did a post about mixing the ingredients of my day into a dish worth eating till there's nothing left....the notion of relishing my life and all the small and large parts of it...

I love synchronicity!

Because today, the fabulous Jamie prompts us to consider this Wishcasting Wednesday, "What do you wish to savor?" See? On the same wave length...

So, not to just sit back on what I've previously penned, I'm going to add this. What I wish to savor is all the tastes of summer. I'm going to max out on the garden my neighbor and I put in this year. And, eat as much as I can stand of the veggies that are rushing to meet the sky.

I want to eat as much sweet corn as the chances permit. Nothing on them at all, just straight from the cob to my lips.

I will eat a snowball if I can find them here, although that seems to be a Maryland treat and not much of them found in PA. But, I will eat Italian Ice if that's all that can be located.

I want to eat crabs! Even if I have to drive back home for them, crabs make for summer when you've grown up in The Land of Pleasant Living. There's nothing like the wonderful, wonderful taste of them and the fun of sitting around with friends while you pick and eat. Old Bay if you please!

A cold beer on a hot, steamy afternoon! Ahh...

And, melons!!! Water, cantaloupe, honey dew, MELONS! I want to sit and spit the seeds...

The tomatoes will be coming soon, and I will eat as many as I pick of the Sweet 100s! And, then I'll break out in a rash that looks like prickly heat from too much acid foods...

...BUT WHO CARES?! It's summer and you don't get to savor those sorts of scrumptious tastes for very long.

Who's with me?

Savor it all...SAVOR your life!

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

Joanna Jenkins said...

Fresh picked sweet corn and tomatoes from the garden is the best summer supper ever! I hope your wishes come true xo

Toni said...

as you (& your palette) wish, so I totally wish for you but you MUST share the crabs. Those are what I would ask for as my last meal; those are what I order every year for our anniversary dinner ... and yes, having grown up in Maryland, I do remember HOW FRICKIN' WONDROUS THEY ARE!!! (also, having watched, with Double BB, a couple episodes of that show about the fishermen who DO the crabbing and what it involves, I triply, quadruply appreciate what it took to bring the delicacy to my butter-smeared lips!)

savoring ... well, I have a few ideas about that. i'm glad I read you EARLY in the day -- reminded me, today, of Wishcast Wednesday, which still isn't automatic in my brain yet!

and corn, straight out of the garden, warmed by the sun, straight down the hatch?!! I do that with sweet corn I get at farmer's markets ...

As Holly wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

Yep! Very savoury indeed!

Budrow Wilson Spain said...

Last year my mommy taught me how to pick the tomatoes, and wild black berries right off the bush! I sure do love fresh fruits and veggies! Unfortunately this year she planted them out of my reach. I guess she is still a little made that I ate everything and left nothing for her.

beth said...
