We will have a big celebration this week celebrating his birthday & our country’s birthday as family arrives in the next few days



The flavor of the month for July is

Grilled Italian Pasta Salad from Miz Helen’s Country Cottage

Here’s what I made from the June Paint Bucket

The Flavor of the Month for June was Watermelon

Spinach & Watermelon Summer Salad

Summer Slab Tomato Pie was inspired by Southern Tomato Slab Pie Squares from A Spicy Perspective

It’s always hard to single out a favorite, I never post recipes that we didn’t think were very good, but I must say that the Sheet Pan Sausage & Marinara Sandwiches will be making a regular appearance at our house!
