Summer is in full swing and with that comes barbecuing, beach going and lazy days just reading…generally because it’s too hot to do anything else!
Going to a Fourth of July bash this weekend? Bring this Flag Fruit Pizza; kids and adults will love it and you can do most of it ahead of time!
And before you head out to that bash celebrating our great country, here is some patriotic inspiration. Star Swain, an assistant principal from Florida, did an impromptu performance of the Star Spangled Banner at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Check it out here.
You can really change up your summer grilling time with these Homemade Hamburger Buns…yep, that’s right…sooooooo much better than store bought.
After the holiday food binge perhaps you want to take a week to shed a few pounds. Fill up on this Cabbage Soup each day and maybe lose a little of the holiday weight gain. (Disclaimer: No guarantees….we aren’t dietitians or doctors here!)
While you are thinking healthier, try this Swordfish with Cucumber Salsa recipe for a light and delicious dinner. We bet this makes it into your summer meal rotation!
And, Newsflash!, we are changing things up a bit, since we are now half way through the year…Starting this coming week our Weekly Wrap-Ups will have a little different format; but we will still be bringing you the same Gr8 Food, Friends and Fun!
Be a Gr8 Friend!
Anna, Kyle, Jurga, and Debbie
