Orsay Museum in Paris, I had a "raspberry juice" that was basically sweetened puree. Oh my goodness. It rivaled anything hanging on the walls of the museum for pure wonderfulness. I have high, high hopes that this syrup will take me back. So if you see me sucking it down straight from the bottle, you'll understand.
The strawberries weren't bad either. Forgive me if I can't remember if I bought Hayton or Youngquist on Saturday--I've bought from both before, and I want to announce that SUGAR BOMB SEASON HAS OFFICIALLY OPENED. You know what I mean. The season of tiny strawberries that just explode in your mouth with sweetness and flavor. Get 'em while they last.
After you've had your fill of fruits, it's time to hit the vegetables. I've spotted snow peas now--perfect for stir fries:
You can even throw in some bamboo shoots from Rockridge (ask Wade how to prepare them):

Summer is the season of fresh, so put down the can of cream of mushroom soup or Trader Joe's curry sauce. Get out of the drive-thru line and treat your family to some real, fresh food.
