June is Outdoor Home Month so we're thinking about outside food, food that comes in with June and leaves with Labor Day. What is outside food, for you? Is it food cooked outdoors? Flame-seared hamburgers with that inimitable charcoal flavor? Clams and mussels wrapped in foil and steamed under the sand? S'mores cooked over a beach campfire until gooey and hot?

Or is it food that you got shooed outside to eat when you were young - wedges of red, dripping watermelon? (With seeds for spitting, please!) Striped popsicles from the ice cream truck? Or perhaps street vendor food, eaten standing up under a tree on a busy day? What does outside summer food look like for you, and what do you look forward to eating when summer begins?
