Minnesota is FINALLY enjoying a bit of Summer. Sooooo much rain through all of June. A pleasant (but somewhat chilly start to July). But now, FINALLY — It looks like we can enjoy some consistent SUMMER days! So I’m enjoying some fresh goodies (produce) from the markets, pulling out my favorite long trays, and throwing together some favorite (simple) summer snacks.
Above — Tasty (colorful) Summer Tomatoes — On a favorite Wood-Fired Tray, made by Zac Spates, of Wisconsin.
Above — More tomatoes, with fresh mozzarella slices and a bit of basil. Simple Caprese arrangement on a new Long Tray made by Colorado artist, Jim Lorio.
Above — I really love this simple tray. The white, glossy shino glaze down the center; the rich, dark-toasty, textured rim.
Above — A bit of sweet and salty — Fresh Melon with Prosciutto. On a Long Tray (soda fired), made by Minnesota Artist, Sandra Shaughnessy.
Above — A favorite Long Tray in my life. The form, graceful-but-fun — Porcelain, hand built, soda fired. Always enjoy Sandra’s free-spirited work!!
Hope everyone is enjoying Summer — And tasty summer freshness!
