Tomatoes, cucumber, and feta -- my summer triumvirate. Plus kalamata olives.

Summer brings a whole new attitude towards food. Quick, room-temperature or cool foods, and fresh fruits and veggies. Today's lunch featured pita, roasted pine nut hummus, cucumber, tomatoes, and crumbled feta. Would have tossed in some salad greens and olives but didn't have any handy. Also picked up plenty of tuna varieties for tuna pasta salad and namya later this week, and served myself strawberries and a spoonful of sherbet for dessert.

Do you know anyone who follows the Chinese tradition of cool vs. hot foods?
