They say admitting you have a problem is the first step, lol. It seems I may have a small problem. Oh well.
My grandfather always did that, too!

My favorite summer foods are homegrown tomatoes - taste SO much better than the hothouse variety Just about any fresh/homegrown veggie gets my vote and anything grilled. Also homemade ice cream - you can make it any time of the year but in July it tastes oh so yummy.

I replied BBQ burgers, but I also like shrimp grilled. Another family favorite is beef kabobs.

I had to go for chicken ...

BBQ chicken, potato salad, corn on the cob, fried okra, cornbread, sweet tea, a big dollop of home cranked vanilla ice cream on top of a bowl of hot peach or blackberry cobbler.
