Blue






Did you know it is National Blueberry Month? Check out all this good info on Blueberries - recipes, activities, health benefits...


What you can pick up and make quick for supper tonight?

  • Snack on the cool fruits of summer - blueberries, blackberries, carrots, cucumbers, melons, cherry or sungold tomatoes - just rinse, chop and chomp.

  • Cool corn and sweet red pepper salad, garnished with dill, ground pepper.

  • Time for a homemade minestrone (filled with all the bounty of summer veggies) or chilled potato leek soup.

  • Tempest tossed salad of tender greens with cantaloupe chunks and sizzling sausage slices. Squeeze a little orange over it and and black pepper.

Never quite sure how to use herbs or spices (or both!?!). This site has great ideas and actual information...
