Such is summer in the city… a study in contrasts. A quiet, rainy Canada Day at home, making pasta salad and peach pie, followed by a whirlwind of fireworks, house guests, neighbourhood wandering, and the pride parade. What fun. The pie was the first I’ve made this year with summer fruit and it was so good. The peaches were fine in terms of flavour (later peaches will be better, when they’re in season in Niagara), but they were still lovely and juicy. Strawberries are at the very end of their season here, so I’m hoping to make a strawberry rhubarb pie this coming weekend.
I am actually crossing my fingers for more rain this weekend – there’s lots I’d like to do outdoors, but it has been so hot and humid this week. We’ve been averaging around 35-40C with humidity. I don’t often wish for air conditioning, but keeping our apartment cool has proven to be particularly difficult lately. Some cool rain with a breeze would certainly do the trick.
What are your plans for this weekend? Has it been this hot where you are?
