Good morning! Is it starting to feel like summer in your neck of the woods? Here we are having fits and starts but I am not complaining, just running outside the moment I see a little sun and soaking it all in.
Although the weather may not be cooperating my mind is already focused on Summer…summer food, summer adventures and more. What about you?
|Mexican Chopped Salad|
One of my favorite things to do in the summer is eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables from the farmers market. This Mexican Chopped Salad from The Cafe Sucre Farine is on my list of salads to try using my recent haul from the market.

As is this Tripple Berry Salad from Chelsea’s Messy Apron.
|Schaum Torte with Raspberries|
As for something a little less healthy, my family loves Schaum Tortes with Berries and we have them at almost every summer occasion.

But if you are not a fan of meringue you could always make Homemade Strawberry Shortcake from Dine & Dish.
Will you be heading on a summer vacation this year? I have several trips planned but they are all in the USA, to Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Chicago, Kansas City and so far that is it!

But if you are headed to France this summer you might want to put Latour Marliac, the gardens that inspired Monet to plant water lilies at his place. Check out the post on Fabulously French for more information.
I LOVE Scotland and dream of living in a cottage there, my second choice would be living in the Cottswolds and this cute house featured on Modern Country Style is right up my alley for a dream cottage in England.
I hope that you have a sunny, happy weekend! If you have something scrumptious or interesting to share please do!
