A note about serious food allergies

The days are getting shorter. The kids are going back to school. The weather is growing crisper, a little nip growing in the air. “Noooo!” you say, "I wasn't done with summer!” Well, neither are we. We're not done with flakey salmon and fresh ingredients such as feisty jalapeño, fresh tomato, and that ultimate summer vegetable, an ear of sweet, crunchy corn. Add a dash of heat with chipotle mayonnaise and crumbly goodness of queso fresco, sit 'em all atop a crunchy tortilla, and we've got the meal for that last gasp of summer celebration.
