We THOUGHT it was here. Saturday was 75 and sunny and sunburns were had by all that were sitting at the baseball game. It might not be HOT, but the rays are intense and we don't cover up because we are so happy to feel that Vitamin D soaking into our deprived bodies!
Fast forward to Sunday evening's game and the darkness was ushered in with a strong cold wind and we wondered if the 'veil in the temple would be rent again' (we wondered this for the second time in a week!) I have turned off the heat for the season and yet am tempted to crank her back up! I'm wearing a sweater and hankering for motivation to post summer recipes and activities.
There aren't many, I tell you, but the oldest of my progeny decided to make a Nectarine Tart. (I've posted this fabulous dessert before, but it bears repeating! It's a keeper, for sure.)
In the middle of her finals' week, Em needed a bit of reprieve from her mental load so she took to the kitchen.
Like mother, like daughter.
Her rendition is so artfully arranged and glazed. I love her for it. It's a thing of beauty.
The tart is WAS scrumptious and you simply must try it, especially with fresh, local nectarines.
(PS—we found gluten-free ginger-snaps to make the crust because Emily is wheat-intolerant, but feel free to use regular gingersnaps … perhaps even make them from scratch!)
