July 2018

Once July hits, I am always reminded of the song “Dragonfly Summer” by Michael Franks, “let the world wait as we procrastinate, its too hot now”.  All the lyrics are just magical the way they “paint” the visions of summer into our imaginations.  July truly is deep into summer.  Plans for vacations, family reunions or just heading out to the camp are in full swing as we (especially here in the northeast) try to fill all of these wonderful sun-filled days.  I will admit, summer can seem to be a bit of a rush and I am guilty of not taking more lazy days to myself, something I am working on.  I am going to heed my own advice of slowing down just a little.  Taking a moment to flip through a magazine or read a book or try a new recipe using all the wonderful fresh produce available now.  Look for some of my favorite salad recipes in the ‘From the Kitchen’ section.  And yes, look up Michael Franks, Dragonfly Summer, I guarantee it will have a place in your summer tunes play list!
