The Organized Life, Summer Paint Bucket

DSC_0003

June is going to be a crazy, busy month.  I am helping host a family reunion on the coast, people are flying in from all 4 corners of the country!

I don’t know how much creative cooking I will be doing, and with the 4th of July right on the heels of the reunion, I am going to combine June and July into one big Summer Paint Bucket  list of recipes to have at my finger tips for quick ideas~

This list will be geared to outdoor and summer entertaining and gatherings, and I hope it will provide some ideas and inspiration for you too…

All the recipes that I want to try from other sources have a link with them so you can look at them and try them also. Recipes that don’t have a link are general thoughts of dishes I want to create or revamp.

Here’s the Summer Paint Bucket for June and July~

    Jenna, Everything looks delicious! I’ve been eyeing HBH’s sweet tea brined chicken sliders and sign me up for a serving (or two🙂 of Shoe String Fries with Truffle Aoli! June’s going to be busy month for me also. We sold our house in Charlotte so I’ve been and will be busy packing, donating and consigning.
