Fruits Of The Season

July 26, 2012

It may be hot out, but that didn’t stop us from a hike! This morning I met Jessica and Genevieve for a welcome-to-Cville hike – both are new to town! We hiked the Monticello Trail up and back – probably just short of 4 miles. Thankfully it was shaded, but that didn’t mean I didn’t finish the hike drenched! I love that trail.

Morning ended and afternoon began with a delicious summery lunch

I made a tomato + cheese + hummus sandwich on Multigrain Sourdough with spinach and a drizzle of mustard and mayonnaise.

And then filled the rest of my plate with fruit!

Do you guys have to get permission to sell a new bread that Matt comes up with on his own?

Nope!

I made it to that trail last year and we left drenched because it started to DOWNPOUR on our way back to the car. Remember that one when the power went out, tree limbs came down and the streets were flooded? It’s a good thing I have cheese in my fridge because that cross section shot of the sandwich is firing up my craving for cheese!

You said it! Nothing like summer fruit! I am seriously addicted to the juicy nectarines and peaches I’ve been buying lately!

Those raspberries look perfect — unless the camera removed their imperfections (just kidding) :)

It is unbearably hot here. I cannot wait for the fall. I love summer but the heat this year is getting to me for some reason. I can’t imagine going for a hike! Lunch looks delicious. Makes me want a veggie sandwich!

I love hiking! I bet you all had a great time!

23 mary @ minutespermile July 26, 2012 at 3:48 pm

random question- how do you cut your peaches? i feel like the pit always sticks to mine and they get all weird and mushy when i try to get the pit out. especially if they’re at that nice soft ripe phase!

Reply

24 KathEats July 26, 2012 at 4:13 pm

I cut off the four “cheeks” and then the bottom – then eat around the pit!

25 Cait's Plate July 26, 2012 at 4:39 pm

That’s exactly how I eat my peaches too! :)

26 Liz July 26, 2012 at 11:54 pm

Exactly how I cut mine (and nectarines), too! Works perfectly & you get nice, straight pieces to cut chunks of, too. :)

27 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio July 26, 2012 at 4:02 pm

cute title! Those are beautiful summer fruits!

28 Cait's Plate July 26, 2012 at 4:37 pm

There absolutely is NOTHING like summer produce!

Also, multigrain sourdough!?! Amazing.

The peach and raspberries next to the sourdough just looks so good.

Apparently I’m craving a hummus & cheese sandwich, because as soon as I read that, my mouth watered. I just finished our tub of hummus yesterday, though….time for more!
