FIVE: Summer eats

Now that it’s finally warm enough to function outdoors sans heavily insulated outerwear, it’s time to fire up the barbeques and relax on the patios with some foods that are best served with twenty plus degrees and sunshine.

Watermelon
Delicious and refreshing. Sure, you could rehydrate with a glass of water, or you could delve into a slice of this fruit that’s 92 per cent water anyways.

Fruit smoothies
Not technically a food, but there’s food in it so it counts. All you need is a blender, yogurt, juice, and fruit of your choice to top off a great summer meal with a perfect beverage to go with it.

Ice Cream
It’s the dessert of summer. You can have ice cream anytime of the year, but it’s never as good as it is when you get it after a day out in the sun or before a walk around the lake.

Shish kebabs
Awesome things impaled alongside more awesome things and grilled over a flame. What’s not to love about that?

Burgers
It really is the staple of a backyard barbeque. It’s hard to find a better way to start a summer weekend than with a thick, juicy burger on a Friday evening.
