Summer is flying by too fast. It's already the end of July, and back to school flyers are flooding our mailbox. Time does fly, but I certainly wish the summers would drag out a little more. Time is precious, and I am grateful. I plan to relish August.
Speaking of summer, some dear friends of ours had a pig roast yesterday. It's always great to spend time with friends. Lots of laughter. I found a moment to myself, and I stood there watching the pig rotate over the fire. I was dressed in all my preppy glory, but truly feeling like a Flintstone. I felt a little bad for the pig, but still I was having a good time. Just the same, the meat was delicious and I'll continue to eat pork.
I made Cherry Bourbon ice cream a couple weeks ago. DELISH! Festive! Knock your socks off!

Speaking of food, I started experimenting and cooking with a Himalayan Salt Block. You can use it for so many different dishes, and would look awesome displaying food as well. Stay tuned to those posts, but in the mean time, to see which block I have, click here.
I saw this quote and thought it was beautiful. Made me think of a friend of mine that wants everything yesterday.
Being solitary is a challenge, but once you do find that ground, you've found solace. Trust me.
I follow several blogs, and I thoroughly enjoy them all. Camella Rayone writes one of my favorite blogs. She and her family live in a small Wyoming town in a house no bigger than 665 square feet. She's a lovely writer. Deep thinker. Check her blog out here.
My parents are up visiting again, and my mom, Caroline and I finally remembered to take a generation picture. I will hold this moment close to my heart forever.
A generation picture for the boys will be in next month's Keeping Fed.
And many of you have written and asked me how my garden is doing. Well, it's doing great!! We have zucchini, tomatoes and green beans, oh my! Going to pickle some jalapeños today. Here is a photo of today's green bean and tomato pick.
Friends, thanks for following me! Enjoy Keeping Fed!
