If you get up early to watch live, consider making yourself a chef’s salad for breakfast, courtesy of Gabrielle Hamilton. Or, if that’s not your thing, make a no-bake dessert and watch in the evening. Come to think of it, there’s no reason you can’t have no-bake mango lime cheesecake in the morning, too.

Hritam Mukherjee from Kolkata, India, recommends that you check out a song about summer rain. (This song is included on the At Home and Away summer playlist.)

Indian summers are incomplete without rain. One of my summer favorites is a Bollywood classic from a Hindi-language film called “Lagaan.” It is called “Ghanan Ghanan,” a vernacular onomatopoeia that refers to the roar of a rain cloud, and is a story in itself of an entire village coming together to celebrate the first spell of the season. The song is in Hindi, and employs a lot of folk instruments.
