I bring all this up for no reason, except that the Mariners don't win all that often, and we ought to savor it.
Just as we ought to savor the summer fruit season as it goes whizzing by! The strawberries are already done and the cherries soon to follow.

FYI, a "nectarcot" is an awesome sweet-tart fruit that reminded me of a pluot. All our fruits are coming at us at an accelerated pace because of the heat wave, so we have to stay alert! My hub even spotted ripening blackberries among the monstrous weeds that threaten to overtake the Greater Puget Sound if you relax your vigilance for even a few months. Blackberries. In July.
But while we're snatching up fruit as the season flies by, don't miss other tasty things making appearances.
Did you notice the smoked tuna on offer at Fishing Vessel St. Jude's? So. Yummy.

Where I had this so-luscious mac and cheese with kimchi:
If any of you out there are Mariners fans, you know the valuable life lessons fandom teaches, which easily apply to eating seasonally:
- You can't have whatever goodness you want, whenever you want it.
- When the good times come, milk them for all they're worth.
A friend who accompanied us to the game happened to be up getting food and refilling water bottles when the Mariners loaded the bases and Austin Jackson hit his first career grand slam. He heard the pandemonium but got no closer to the festivities than staring up at the monitor by the concession stand.
Sadly, that will be me, with this week's Markets. I'll be eating pool concessions at the kids' swim meets while you all have a ball. Think of me, when you're enjoying summer's walk-off victories.
