Summer Spaghetti

Summer SpaghettiIf you were to judge dinners around here by my instagram feed, or say, by the contents of my fridge at first glance, you might reasonably come to the conclusion that I feed my family nothing but berries and stone fruit.  And while I admit that a huge portion of our diet in the summer consists of just that (blackberries, and nectarines, and blueberries, oh my!), I do make dinner.  Every night.  (They insist on being fed every night, the nerve of them!)
