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!
Amazing peach + raspberries
Nothin’ like summer produce!
Krissy @ Shiawase Life says
Yum! I gotta try that new sourdough!
I don’t think it’s for sale yet, but hopefully in August – it’s good!!
Krissy @ Shiawase Life says
Nice, I’ll be looking forward to it 😀
Lindsey @ Pas de Deux says
YUM! I can’t wait to try that bread!! I still have never been on that trail… I need to fix that ASAP!
Do you guys have to get permission to sell a new bread that Matt comes up with on his own?

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!
Caroline @ After Dinner Dance says
You said it! Nothing like summer fruit! I am seriously addicted to the juicy nectarines and peaches I’ve been buying lately!
Lynn @ the actor's diet says
I love fruit photos in the summer – poppin colors!
Those raspberries look perfect — unless the camera removed their imperfections (just kidding) 🙂
Haha – nope, they were perfect!
Loving all the fresh fruit 🙂
Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says

Michelle (Peachy Palate) says
There really isn’t, nothing compares to a super ripe peach! 🙂
Averie @ Averie Cooks says
Amazing peach + raspberries <– yes, I'd say! Wish we could have fruit like that year round!
Amanda @flecksofgreen says
The fruit looks mouth wateringly good! I love how you always seem to make such healthy and fresh sandwiches too!
Kristen @ Change of Pace says
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!
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats says
I love hiking! I bet you all had a great time!
mary @ minutespermile says
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!
I cut off the four “cheeks” and then the bottom – then eat around the pit!
Cait's Plate says
That’s exactly how I eat my peaches too! 🙂
Exactly how I cut mine (and nectarines), too! Works perfectly & you get nice, straight pieces to cut chunks of, too. 🙂
Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio says
cute title! Those are beautiful summer fruits!
Cait's Plate says
There absolutely is NOTHING like summer produce!
Also, multigrain sourdough!?! Amazing.
The fruit looks amazing! So colorful!!
The peach and raspberries next to the sourdough just looks so good.
Where do you like to shop for plates/bowls? Your table settings are always so gorgeous!
Thanks! Pier 1, Pottery Barn, online, Crate + Barrel
Emily @ Life on Food says
Peaches have been so good this year…I could have one at every meal. Wait, I think I did that today.
MegS @ Beauty of Meg says
That sandwich is perfection! Yummmmmy!!!! 🙂
I like raspberries but sometimes they taste furry…. Iol
I couldn’t agree with you more! NOTHING beats summer produce! I blogged about the summer produce in my area today too – love the beautiful colors of it all… behealthybehappybelocal.com

The hike sounds like a lot of fun…lunch looks delicious. Love hummus on a sandwich!
Julia H. @ Going Gulia says
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!
