I know, I know. That’s why I make sure to eat peaches as long as I can. I do love them. We have corn about every week in summer. Here tomatoes come in late, but I always look forward to the local ones.

But peaches—yum. I never tire of them, and then, suddenly it seems, they’re gone.

Wow, you got stones lady. I live a half hour north in Delray and I haven't fried an egg since before the fourth of July!
Actually I look forward to cooking indoors as soon as the nights cool down, which they will do eventually, right?

Now I'm prepping a pork leg roast to cook overnight in the slow cooker on the patio outside.
As soon as football season starts the outdoor grill is my go to stove which I'll use for meats and vegetables.
Then I'll phase in my stove top and I'll finally make me some eggs. Yay!
P.S. I use the toaster and microwave ad libitum year round

Considering, as you both know, we only have two seasons, Summer and tourist. Summer is way longer than tourist by the calendar, but tourist is way too long, having to see 300+ pound men on the beach in Speedos. Especially when they are sideways to.

We bought induction burners to keep the heat in the kitchen down and try to plan meals to use them. I also have several pieces of outdoor cooking equipment including a large BGE, Horizon off set pit and a couple other pieces.

I'm not waiting for it to cool down before I make it again.

Lots of good ideas. I hadn't thought about fall and winter cooking specifically yet, but I realize after reading your posts so far, I am looking forward to some split pea soup, chicken soup, roasting a whole chicken (served with mashed potatoes and green beans), and Sloppy Joes. Since I make chili year round, I may not wait until fall for the Sloppy Joes.

Oh, the other thing I am looking forward to is spaghetti gravy. Way too warm to make that right now. But I have lots of fresh basil in the garden for pesto, so we're still enjoying that.

So true...while we are dreaming of fall cooking there is still the end of summer dishes to savor a bit longer...
my tomatoes are ripening late so should have some til freeze...more tomato pies, gazpacho, mayo & tomato sandwiches etc.

Corn still sweet and plentiful....I eat off the cob with nothing added.

... nectarines still juicy and tasty. Made a nectarine and peaches cobbler....love the combo.

I miss pot roast with red potatoes, carrots, parsnips, mushrooms, and an onion. I roast it with some red wine, and even better, Marsala. It makes the best gravy.
