The Organized Life, August Paint Bucket

Tomorrow is August 1, which means Summer is rapidly slipping away


As much as we all love thinking about Fall,

cooler temps and comfort food,

I still want to savor the last days Summer

I was having trouble picking a theme/flavor of the month

because this list is such a hodge podge of recipes…

Lots of Americanized Mexican dishes,

an Italian appetizer and an Asian Main Dish…

Since August is known as being “the Dog Days of Summer,”

the theme for this August is Mixed Breed 🐶

You can see photos of all the listed recipes in the August section

    All of these are such great summer treats. I”m glad to see these because, as much as I love fall and comfort foods, I am not ready for fall. This summer has gone by so quickly.

    I have been going through my cookbooks and planning Fall cooking to post. It is so hard to pick a theme. So many wonderful things to make. I love your table settings.

  12. You always find the best things! It’s a great season for cooking — and enjoying it all! Love the painting, too!
