August Announcement

Hi Everyone,

With August here and social distancing still ongoing I started thinking of picnics and stay-cations during this season of life that we are in! My hope is to share with you some recipes and craft ideas for the kids. So, as the month progresses Alissa & myself will be sharing a variety of posts & ideas with you; we will see how this goes! 

I come from a very large family. Lots of aunts, uncles, cousins! Our family did not have a lot of money but, my dad always made sure we were surrounded by love, family and food! Some of my favorite memories are summer picnics with my big family! Everyone would gather at my parent’s house. Dad would start early in the morning; he’d husk and clean the roughly 5-6 dozen ears of corn he purchased from a local farm, or he would soak and clean the clams purchased for those who liked them or he would make his special hand made burgers. Not to mention all the side dishes prepared from vegetables from my dad’s garden. We did not have much money but, that did not seem to matter to any of us. We had family and memories and that’s what mattered most!

If you have try any of these recipes & ideas and you enjoyed them or have any questions please leave us a comment below; we love to hear from you!

Do you have childhood memories of picnics with your family? If so, please feel free to share them with us.
