i have three favorite months of the year: march, because it starts to warm up and everything again becomes green. october, because it is crispy cool outside and the leaves change into magnificent colors, eating chili, and chilly football games, and halloween is the funnest. and july, my most favorite holiday - our nation's birthday, the steamy temps, lots of swimming, and because the gardens and orchards are overflowing with the best stuff nature has to offer. peaches, blackberries, sweet corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and zucchini, ect. ect. ect.
it is almost july.
here are a few of my favorite things to make in july.
