I am not complaining at all, but it has been unseasonably cool here in Portland. I’ve been wearing my long sleeves on our morning walks, and the pool is just sitting there, ready to be jumped into. After a week of cold weather and even rain, summer is returning! We are going to a wedding this evening and over the weekend are planning to grill and maybe even have that pool party.
This morning’s smoothie includes a fruit that for me, just screams summertime – cantaloupe. I am almost always transported to my grandparents house, hot summer days of playing outside, watching Grandpa Z fill the hummingbird feeders, eating frozen grapes and wedge after wedge of cantaloupe to cool off.
Can I go back there just for one day?
Today’s is a very simple recipe – three ingredients – and it is quick to put together.

serves two, or me
1/2 cantaloupe, chopped

Blend at high speed and enjoy. Preferably on the deck in the sun with your favorite
Which, in Grandpa Z’s case, would be Hansel, the dachshund I grew up with.
Grandpa & Grandma Z, this is for you.
