As a cool breeze stirs the daybreak
and the sun opens up our hearts
to an afternoon of warm bliss
then back again
where we reach for a furry throw
and a heated body...
It is Indian Summer,
and it doesn't come any finer, my Darlings.
But these delectable days, so fleeting,
and so fair
make me want to to take what's left of Summer
and make love to it
So I reach for a sacred bowl
of earthly pleasures.
Simple. Sensual. Sublime.
Join me for one last salt water kiss?
Summer Lovers Salad
- 1 ripe organic cantaloupe
- 1 qt organic strawberries
- 1/2 organic cucumber, skin on, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 5-10 organic mint leaves
- 5 organic basil leaves
- Celtic salt
Just dice the cantaloupe and slice the strawberries, toss in the cukes, splash the vinegar, tear the leaves, and pinch the salt, Lusty Ones. It couldn't be more playful!
Strawberries are bursting with vitamin C, antioxidants, and beautifying minerals. An ancient love food, they are ruled by Venus and sacred to the Norse goddess Freya. How's that for divine?
Cantaploupe is also a lunar love food, wildly high in vitamin A and B-6. And cukes, of course, have that wonderful silica and sulfur in the skins that promote radiant hair and skin.
Saucy fact: Moon-y cucumbers were once placed under the noses of women who felt faint, as the refreshing scent was believed to revive them.
You now have in your hands a magical, beautifying, libido-revving treasure that's purrfect for any time of day or night. Enjoy it to the fullest!
And savor every sticky sweet salty sassy instant left in this season.
For soon, we pull Autumn in for a wild embrace...
But for today,
I'll meet you under the boardwalk,
sand in my hair,
