It is a million degrees and we’re covered in sweat and don’t want to cook.
Dinner in the summer needs to be as easy as it is tasty. We want the kind of dishes that you can throw together in less than 15 minutes— without generating any fresh underboob sweat— and, for us, that means pasta.
Pasta with Avocado Pesto
Boil some water, generously salt, and cook a big handful of Thick Spaghetti until al dente. Scoop the flesh from a ripe Avocado, mix with 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil, too much roughly chopped Basil, Salt and Pepper to taste, and a splash of Balsamic. If you feel real wild, add a pinch of Red Pepper. Toss with the Spaghetti, serve warm, cold, or somewhere in between with as many fresh, heirloom Cherry Tomatoes you can find and, if you can stand to heat up the house, a little crumbled, crispy Bacon. It’s like a BLT in a bowl but 10,000 better. Serves 2-4.
Eat it all with a pile of Greens tossed with Vinaigrette and some crusty Bread or save some for lunch the next day; the Olive Oil keeps the Avocado from oxodizing and turning that upsetting old-guacamole-brown.

Arrival of the Cygnets -ABBOTSBURY, UNITED KINGDOM; This year the arrival of the cygnets at the only publically accessible colony of nesting mute swans in the world, has been later than usual due to the colder than average start to the year. However, the arrival of the cygnets is traditionally seen as the start of summer and local traditions claim the Benedictine Monks who owned the Dorset swannery between 1000 AD and the 1540s believed the first cygnet signaled the season’s first day. Abbotsbury Swannery’s mute swans - up to 1,000 in total - are all free flying, and are not kept in cages.
