Fun Monday- Summertime

Jenni over at Prairie Air is this week’s hostess of Fun Monday.  Her challenge is: 

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:
Share one or more of your favorite summertime memories with us. It can be a childhood memory or more recent. The memory can be a vague conglomeration of how you spent summers past (catching fireflies, playing outside till dark, watermelon seed wars) or it can be a detailed memory of a specific event. You may write a poem or short story or just tell it like it was. The main idea is to communicate the essence of summer and what symbolizes the season in words and/or pictures.

What do I remember about summertime as a kid?  The food!!

  • Corn on the cob
  • Watermelon
  • Hamburgers
  • Hot dogs burnt on the grill
  • Tomato sandwiches on Wonder bread with mayo
  • Ice cream cones (of course)

And all sorts of other food that I can’t bear to even think about because I am so nauseous I could die.

My Fun Monday contributions just keep getting better.

  1. There is no other way to eat a hot dog in summer time, than burned. Mmmmmmmmmm

  2. What are you talking about!? This is a truly great Fun Monday post (if you have seen mine you’ll know why I say this)

  3. Watermelon – the BEST summer treat EVER!

  4. “Don’t you remember the fizz in a Pepper
    Peanuts in a bottle at ten two and four
    A fried bologna sandwich with mayo and tomato…”

    All I have to say is what about the fair food? Cotton candy, corn dogs, funnel cake, fried onions, fried mushrooms, fried corn on the cob, fried Twinkies, fried Snickers. I could go on and on. Those fair folks have figured out how to fry everything. Isn’t everything better fried?
