In this week’s newsletter: surviving the dog days of Summer, guillotine haircuts, wildfire, and some favorite things

Keeping your cool during the dog days of Summer is challenging for sure. Some nights the idea of cooking in 100+ heat makes me want to cry. One of my favorite meals this time of year is a Peach Caprese Salad. Nothing too elaborate for this since it is also my go-to desk lunch.

Peach Caprese Salad (for one)
1 peach (sliced)
A handful of cherry tomatoes (or 1 sliced tomato)

4-6 Oz. fresh mozzarella (sliced)
Fresh basil leaves (just tear up as much as you like)
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
A drizzle of balsamic vinegar
S & P to taste

Notes: There are no exact measurements here... simply tailor to your liking. Any stone fruit will do... even cherries. Oh, and arugula is nice if basil is not your thing.

Okay, maybe not yet but it's gonna happen people! Even here in central Texas. I am hypnotized by this You Tube series by Brooklyn Tweed because who doesn't like to see how things are made? Brooklyn Tweed yarns are yummy. 

Bahhh-k in the day there were many wool and fiber mills in the United States. Brooklyn Tweed manufactures breed-specific wool yarns that support domestic textile production. They source dye and spin their yarns 100% within the USA.

Watching people in pea coats solve murders in cold British seaside towns can make you feel cooler. Okay, I have no way of proving it, but try it. What do you have to lose?

Cool down with these blustery, waterlogged mysteries:
