Summer is coming to an end. Hehe. 🙂

Most all of my friends are all over there like, “Oh no! I never want Summer to end! I love the immense heat, and sun, and changing my clothes 20+ times a day into dry ones. I love to “glisten” (because Southern ladies simply do not sweat). I just love it when my make-up melts into globs and runs down my face like Rainbow Bright. Summer CAN’T BE OVER!”

Meanwhile, I’m all over here like, “Soups, Stews, Pumpkins, Squash, Chicken & Dumplings, Bonfires, BOOTS! …Football! Friends! Food! Fall Leaves! Fall Breezes! The Fair! ALL of the good F Words!! Did I say football? OH! …and THEN there’s football!”

I admit. I do love fresh summer foods too, like this seriously good Seared Tuna & Plum Salad. But y’all we can eat these things YEAR-ROUND! Who wants soup in July???

In summation, as for me and my house, we will welcome the season and the boys of fall. GO GAMECOCKS! GO< FIGHT< WIN< KICK SOME TAIL FEATHERS!!!

Bring. It. ON!!! 🙂

Place greens, carrot, and plums in salad bowls. Season tuna according to preference. Pan sear the tuna over medium heat, about 1 1/2 minutes each side for a nice rare center. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then thinly slice tuna. Add to salad. Dress with Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar.


Life is too short to eat ugly food y’all.
