Eau de rhubarbe écarlate - Tangy and tart, smooth as custard - July 29, 2017

Eau de rhubarbe écarlate bottle - usa.hermes.com

I like uncomplicated simple meals in the summer, fresh veggies and herbs in salads, lots of crunch and tang added to the mix from nuts and or a bit of cheese.  Berries or stone fruits with ice cream for dessert. Easy-peasy to make, delicious to eat. Light and simple.
