Summer on a plate for me is sweet corn and a tomato and cheese sandwich followed by watermelon. Yum! Now I'll have to go to the farmer's market and pick up the ingredients!

When we had a real vegetable garden, summer on a plate was sliced beefsteak tomato still warm from the sun sprinkled with salt, pepper and red wine vinegar.

For me, it's stuffed peppers, fried zucchini, sliced tomatoes and corn on the cob, with peach cobbler for dessert.

That's certainly the updated version!!!! For lunch (around 2:00) it will be with basil! I just remembererd I have some mozzarella wrapped proscuitto - oh boy - it's a panini for me at 2:00!!!!! Pic will follow

I will make a vinaigrette out of all my herbs and marinate the tomatoes in that and sweet onions (Maui or any other) - remove from marinade then proceed with said sandwich - that's another updated version.

Please stop now. I have been wandering around the kitchen and pantry looking for something to eat for lunch later. No luck. You're not helping.
