Summertime in Michigan is short and needs to be savored. I’m back in my home state for a month and trying to take in as much as I can without overwhelming myself. While we all have different memories of summer, some things are universal— like food. Fresh berries, outdoor grilling, cold drinks: the flavors of summer.
Here’s what I’ve been up to the past month…
Visiting a blueberry farm and picking your own crop is a great way to spend a summer afternoon. They’re sweeter right off of the bush.
My favorite summertime fruit: strawberries.
Berries from Wayne State’s farmer’s market.
Something light, for a hot summer day: Veggie wrap from The Clean Plate, in Macomb County.
Ypsilanti-brewed kambucha beer and rice & chickpeas from a food truck in Bill’s Beer Garden, Ann Arbor. (Food courtesy of Mark’s Carts.)
Vegan poutine at Brooklyn Street Local, Detroit.
Vegan ramen at Johnny Noodle King in Detroit.
Vegan sushi at Om Cafe in Ferndale.
Vernor’s flavored ice cream from Treat Dreams in Detroit.
What’s your favorite summertime food? Let me know in the comments.
