It’s here. Ignore your calendar. Ignore the news. I’m here to tell you they are all wrong because I have hard evidence that IT has arrived.  The first sign hits in that clean smell, the one that always makes me look up and squint, expecting the sun to beat down on me with a hammer of heat.  Chlorine. It’s rising in waves all around — in my girls’ hair, in the bathroom from drying swim suits, in towels in laundry baskets. That’s just the beginning. Because this is a season that doesn’t mess around. IT comes on like gang-busters around here.  Summer is here.  Summer isn’t happy with a little chlorine in the air, though. Already it has moved on to planting little wet spots on the chairs in the kitchen from wet bottoms and foot prints on the floor from someone who snuck in for a potty break.  Sure, I know there’s still three weeks of school left. It’s going to be torture. I don’t envy teachers these last few weeks. Summer looms as big as a monster slide at Schlitterbahn, impossible to ignore. Mireya, in the final days of third grade, has resorted to counting down the days on her calendar, little purple Xs marching toward the 27th when it hits. School will be out.  I love summer. I’m not scared of 100-degree days or sunburns. I’m a Texan. We are the capital of leathery skin and perpetual squints. But as a parent, I’ve found summer brings special joys.  Summer is when sunscreen replaces lotion and the entire house smells like one giant pina colada.  Summer is when the food groups change to ice cream, hot dogs and grapes — in that order.  Summer is when I’ll scream in the shower after I discover there are only hand towels left to dry off with.  Summer is when sunlight pierces through us early and late, and we look like rock stars wearing sunglasses until 9 p.m.  Summer is when mosquitoes the size of 747s land in our yard and chase us inside to add insect repellent on top of our sunscreen layer.  Summer is when chiggers make us stop complaining about mosquitoes.  Summer is where we lose track of the day of the week, unless it’s getting close to someone’s birthday, in which case we know exactly how many days are left. And hours. And minutes.  So here’s a wish for our sum-mer. May the sunburns be minor and the bathrooms have just one clean towel left when we get out of the shower!

The man credited with popularizing tapas — the Spanish custom of dining on small, shared plates — was named the nation's most outstanding chef Monday during the James Beard Foundation's annual awards ceremo  ny, the so-called Oscars of the culinary crowd.  Andres has been praised for a string of successful restaurants around the country — most notably Jaleo and minibar by Jose Andres in Washington, D.C. — which challenged the conventional thinking that anything but heaping portions would leave  American diners unsatisfied.  Recently, Andres — who grew up outside Barcelona and moved to the U.S. 21 years ago after training with famed Spanish chef Ferran Adria — has become known almost as much for his politics as for what he puts on the plate. He has spoken often — and even lobbied friends in Congress — on issues including school lunch standards, childhood obesity, hunger, subsidies for agribusiness and food marketing.  "Food is the most powerful thing we have in our hands. Not only chefs, but everyone in the food community. The right use of food can end hunger," Andres said Monday after accepting his award.
