Freshdirect.com, my favorite website for ordering groceries in the neighborhood, posted this ‘goodbye to summer’ today on Facebook.
I love the sentiment — the poster’s graphic look and feel, too.
But they can’t honestly be suggesting that my popsicles, fudge bars and toffee crunch bars — all reduced fat and sugar-free, of course — should be packed away with my summer clothes and flip flops….
I find popsicles refreshing year round. They are the perfect light dessert — that little taste of sweet that doesn’t linger compared to heavy cakes and pies.
They aren’t seasonal. They’re sensible.
Of course, I feel much the same way about soup — love me some soup any time of year, especially in summer. When the AC is cranked in public buildings, soup is the best way to warm up.
Turning up the thermostat also works.
Let’s give food a chance.
