Figs are in season here now, so I’m loving life. My neighbor has a giant fig tree that is just bursting with fruit, and I picked a few on the way home from walking the kiddos to school yesterday. Aren’t they glorious? I decided to make sweet fig sandwiches with cream cheese and honey for lunch today.
