Ever go to a restaurant and find the special is called "a mixed grill"? From what I understand, this usually means they don't have enough of one something-or-other to make it as a stand-alone menu item. So you get a mix of things. Could be delicious. Could be... less so.
In any event, I haven't blogged for quite a while and I don't have the patience at the moment to do a proper single-thought blog. Hence, the mixed grill of my summer stuff. (Photos from various sources.)
