What I found during a week in the woods.
I took a working vacation into the wilderness. It was a volunteer cooking gig, actually, but this post is not about food. It is a little photographic tour of some other things that sustain us–in more subtle ways.

Get your sweet onion on–and soon.
When there is so much fabulous produce abounding right now, why in the world would I get excited over onions, of all things?
Because Walla Walla sweet onions are on right now, and they have a season as short as peaches. By the middle of this month, the whole crop will be harvested and once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Yup, fresh, seasonal onions. Kinda unexpected, no?

Summer sustenance through a straw.
It was midday, we four were all hot and hungry on a long drive back from a camping trip. Happily, lunchtime put us in
Pasco, a city just on the Washington state side of the Columbia River.
I had one thought and one thought only: tacos.

Summer survival eating in a bowl.
On June evenings when it got
really hot–so hot your shorts stuck to your thighs and even we kids were sweating–my Mom did not call us in for supper.
Instead of the usual place-mats-and-cloth-napkins dinner table, she brought the food out to us where we played in the yard under the shade of towering oak trees.

Don’t miss out on this part of summer.
Hammocks in the shade. Road trips with the windows rolled down. Cookouts on the deck.
And these giant cookie ice cream sandwiches.
