Life is back to usual - all the kids are home!
For two weeks that is . . . Joel goes to soccer camp the first week of August.
But for now - we are all here.
I love late summer - I always have. It was even better back in the day when school didn't start until after Labor Day.
Back then late July and August were full of hot and lazy nights, lightning bug catching, tomato and watermelon eating, bike riding, and running around the house with a dish soap bottle down your underpants.
We didn't have a pool growing up.
Anyway, one of the best things about late summer is the fresh produce - fruits and vegetables that taste the way God intended them to taste. Unlike those hot house varieties that Walmart sells.
I am going to do my best to incorporate as many of these into our menu this week as possible!
Monday - BLTs, corn on the cob, cantaloupe
Tuesday - fresh green beans and new potatoes, ham steaks, angel food cake with black berries and cool whip
Wednesday - egg salad sandwiches, chips, applesauce
Thursday - cheeseburgers (on the grill), corn (on the grill), relish tray, cottage cheese and chips
Friday - pulled pork, fried green tomatoes, Georgina's salad, cheesecake
Recipes I will highlight this week: Georgina's salad and pickled beets.
*I am still searching for recipes for Megan and Adam's reception. I will post them periodically as I narrow them down.
