10.) Sweet corn on the cob
9.) grilled rack of ribs w/ a good dry rub
8.) Blueberries
7.) Honeydew
6.) homemade burgers (none of that premade frozen patty crap)
5.) Cantaloupe
4.) strawberries
3.) raspberries
2.) grilled steaks




1.) fresh black cherries. if you have never eaten these you really really really have no idea what you are missing. they are incredibly sweet and very very good tasting.


If I weren't allergic to peaches, I would have put white peaches up there.

Thats a good list.

Hmmmmmmmm.........

1.) Mojitos
2.) Fresh Chips with salsa. (There is a mexican resturante that has the BEST chips/salsa. No other store, no stuff in a super market, no stuff anywhere comes close. It's my benchmark to compare others but nothing has ever measured up).

3.-10) have to think about it.........

Fresh baby beets with tender greens.
Stir-fries with fresh snow-pea pods.
Fresh steamed green beans.
Almost any stir-fry, butter mixture or pesto made with fresh garlic scapes.
Sun-warm ripe tomatoes right off the vine.
Ditto for tart little pickling cucumbers.
Freshly picked wild blackberries.
Fresh-made cold salsa (my canned salsas are good, but not like the fresh stuff) with tomatoes, chilies, and herbs from my garden.
Crispy raw Sugarsnax carrots.
Apples from the tree at the end of my driveway.

I can't put numbers on these because whenever any of them become available, they end up at #1.

I'll trade you cantaloupe for tomatoes fresh picked from the garden, and I think we can agree on the rest. :biggrin:

I'll take vine-ripended tomatoes over strawberries, and raise you a cucumber.

I'll take a vine ripened tomato and a cucumber over about any berry and raise you a habanero AND green beans. Fresh leaf lettuce optional.

Watermelon

I was shocked when, while camping, my wife's uncle, a very "proper" guy, said to me that watermelon is "good for men."

tomatoes are out. they are all tainted.


Grilled peaches are really good too. Halve the peaches. Melt some butter, add cinnamon, and brown sugar to taste. Throw in the peach halves and coat them thoroughly in the sugar sauce. Thrown on grill and cook both sides until tender. It's great!

yes, but you have to eat 10 or over 10 watermelon at once to see the effects.

Not much beats firing up the BBQ and throwing on some steaks or burgers with baked potatoes and all the fixins, a cold pasta salad, and a beer or cooler with some fruit for dessert and eating on the patio on a nice summer evening.

Yes, my husband looked at me oddly when I encouraged him to eat more rind.:cool:

Fruit in general. Plums, Peachs, and Ruby Red Grapefruits are particular favourites.
Fruit juices of all sorts. I love Mango the most though I think.
And Fish Tacos with
Cold Beer.
Or maybe a Margarita.

I am shocked right now, wondering whereas her claims of "I love watermelon in summer in the morning" were hiding manipulation :bugeye:
