This weekend -- first order of business: Try not to fry to death. The sun is, however, a friend to my basil. If you don't have your own bumper crop of basil, buy some at Astoria Fruit & Vegtable on 38th & Brodway. Pick up some nectarines and lemons, too. Cool off with tasty nectarine-basil lemonade.
Don't get so mellow that you end up hitched, though. That would be madness.
Stay tuned for a bloggy on Astorian ice cream! That should be some tough research.
