roadside in North Carolina

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Popping up alongside highways & back roads in the summer & fall months in the South; fresh produce stands are quite possibly my favorite places in the world.  They lure you in with their gravel driveway & notsomuchparkinglot, their promise of local produce, watermelons the size of your dog, and hopefully a bag of steaming hot boiled peanuts paired with a glass bottle soda.

A true southern girl, complementing my love for food & cooking-- produce stands lure me in every time.  A must stop when traveling, my family and husband roll their eyes but are silently thankful that they get boiled peanuts out of the pitstop.

We left with squash, zucchini, tomatoes, watermelon, & fresh silver queen corn; oh & two pounds of boiled peanuts.

Summer produce is definitely my favorite.  Colorful, fresh, -- dinners are just better in the summer. Dining al fresco with friends & family; indulging in sweet corn & blueberry pie for dessert.
