Most of the country has been in a heat wave, with several consecutive days with temperatures reaching over the hundred degree mark. Here in the New York Metro area, we've been lucky enough to avoid triple digit temps, but it's still been a warm few weeks! Personally, it makes me very happy.
Of course, the high temps mean that I have to take a few showers each day and that we've been doing a lot of laundry. It also means that I've been avoiding my oven and making lots of salads. Feeling the heat too? Head to the farmers market and stock up!
What day do you consider the beginning of summer?
