I skip meals in the summer hahaha but substitute large amounts of in-season fruits! Peaches, raspberries, strawberries and watermelon are among my favorites!

Oh, oh, I love it! My favorite summer straw bag recently bit the dust, so I'm drooling over this one right now.

I love the whole fresh tomatoes with fresh mozzarella thing in the summertime. Nom nom nom.

Super cute bag; I could totally see myself toting it along, wearing a simple dress and sandles.

And my favorite summertime meal? Without a doubt, salads... my favorite being a spring herb salad with grilled chicken and strawberries. I LOVE strawberries in my salad.

Sara said...

My favorite summertime meal is hard to pinpoint, but I think it might have to be bruschetta, chilled pasta with olive oil, garlic, and tomatoes, berry lemonade, and mango sorbet for dessert. Foodgasm.

Also, this bag is perfection.

My email is sbm37 at case.edu

Thanks! :)

Awesome giveaway! In the summer, and anytime, I love bean and corn nachos with my homemade mango and cucumber salsa! So yummy! :)

Favorite summertime meal-has to involve corn. It's the corn pizza with roasted bell peppers, garlic olive oil, onions and lemon from a local pizza collective here in Berkeley-Cheeseboard Pizza. I crave it for most of the year and only get to enjoy it in the summertime. Hope to get that gorgeous bag! Email-christi.valli@gmail.com

Joy said...

gorgeous tote! my favorite summer meal is a whole-wheat wrap stuffed with thick avocado slices, chicken breast, cucumber sauce, and jack cheese. I love to top it off with a raspberry/pineapple smoothie and plain frozen yogurt!

Favorite summertime meal would definitely be roasted tomato and red pepper gazpacho with a caprese salad. Light and full of summer flavors. Or maybe pesto made from my basil plants.

Love the bag! I would have to say that my favorite summertime meal is a lobster roll with a lime rickey. Growing up in Maine, that meal immediately reminds me of summer fairs and nights by the water.

Thanks for offering a great giveaway!

I'm such a Texan -- My favorite summer time meal is to BBQ with my boyfriend and his friend while drinking some Lonestar beers. When I am by myself, I tend to reach for a salad of fresh spinach, sliced cherry tomatoes over a bed of brown rice and topped with some herb and garlic tuna.

Hmmm...not good at picking favorites but the meal I've ate the most this summer is a spicey black bean burger with some sort of pasta salad or couscous and fresh fruit.

My favourite summertime meal is teriyaki shrimp kebabs with lots of ginger in the marinade, skewered with pineapple, and served on a mesclun salad with a quinoa pilaf on the side.

Wow, that was very specific!

Lately I've become a fan of spaghetti alla grigio = whole wheat spaghetti with pancetta, pecorino, and fresh pepper. Yum.

Gorgeous stuff in that shop, especially the bags. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Kate said...

This bag would be perfect for text books for my first year at college!

My perfect summertime meal is a slice of pizza with my boyfriend because our favorite pizza place is right next to our favorite water ice stand! Water ice is, because I think it's just a regional thing, Italian ice's yummier relative.

Linds said...

aside from the regular bbq chicken and ribs with corn and tomato and mozz salad, I also love to make a cold pasta salad substituting orzo with olive oil, red wine vinegar, and tons of mint!

Tex & Ludelle said...

I just came home for the first time in over a year and to celebrate, my mom made the most amazing seafood feast--king crab legs, shrimp, corn, green beans and a salad with veggies she grew herself. For dessert--s'mores over the campfire. We ate it outside next to the pond--beautiful welcome home!

Shannon said...

To me, summer means real Texas barbecue, watermelon and cantaloupe, cole slaw and iced tea :)

Jamie said...

ADORABLE!

Favorite summer meal: corn on the cob:) Fruit salad, turkey burger with apples and avocado!

Jen said...

My fav summertime meal would be fish tacos and margaritas.

My favorite summer time meal would either be a fresh strawberry-peach smoothie, the hamburgers my step mom makes, or fresh-picked corn on the cob with loads of butter and salt!
