It is 86 degrees outside which means I am finding the nearest pool and I am going to sit in it for UMMMMM maybe the next 6 hours.  I feel like this summer is going to be hotter than all other summers. But I’m suer excited that it is that summer because a few things happen durning the summer that is pretty epic in our family.

We go camping, fishing and grill a lot. Not to mention the fact that some of my favorite foods are super delicious durning the summer months. Watermelon, Berries, Squash, Tomatoes and Corn are so good. I think I live on only those until its pumpkin season.

We go camping- not like ” Alone “. But camping non the less. We visit my parents house in Naples and we set up a tent in their back yard. It is kinda in the woods with about 5 acres and a FENCE. I Don’t judge me- I have a fear of large animals that can kill me. Plus hey- we live literally beside the everglades. Which equals alligators. And alligators + me – a titanium fence= No bueno! See mom I am a math wiz!

So when I think of camping I automatically think of tarts. I don’t know why guys. This is the exact train of thought that produced this recipe. Camping- outdoors- fire-grilling- grilled corn- corn tart- goat cheese- OH YES!!! Now I could be completely wrong about camping but that seems like sound logic to me.

I like to top this summer squash roasted corn tart with a quick arugula and parmesan salad. It does a couple of things: 1). I love the peppery bite from the arugula and the salty bite from the parmesan. 2). It makes it a complete meal. I’m all for that! Don’t you just love summer foods too?

So before I go, it is Memorial Day! It’s not just a day off work or the start of summer or the perfect beach day. It is a day to remember all our soldiers who served and lost their lives. My brother was in the army and my sister-in-law is still an active service member. I know the prayers we all say for our soldiers. Let’s not forget the family of those soldiers that have lost their lives doing one of the most honorable things- protecting our freedom. HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
