Record Heat, Muffuletta Sandwich, A Little Peek At Our 4th Of July


                     
Record Heat-
Summer's here- over 100 today, with more record heat this next week. Thanks goodness for A/C! Giving the hens lots of cold water and wet snacks. Staying cool inside and trying to minimize errands. Dave's been watering and watering and watering. Our turf is finally looking much better after doing some much needed re-seeding and fertilizing (natural). While I'm not a turf fan it's what works for us right now.

     

Muffuletta Sandwich-
I've made this several times, and it's one of my all-time favorite recipes- Muffuletta Sandwich  I decided to make a cold dinner since we're hitting a record high heat this week. It's a really nice combination of the "olive salad" and meat, cheese and bread. You can do a veggie version with just cheese, or even skip that. The salad only takes about 10 minutes to put together.


 A Little Peek At Our 4th Of July-
I have found I decorate less, but with more favorite pieces, during the seasons or holidays. Some people decorate every square inch of their homes and I find that visually overkill. Here's a few of my 4th of July indoor goodies, the rest are outside. I wasn't up to going outside to shoot in 103 heat :)

My chunky prim flag that I made last year, directions here Chunky Prim Flag, really fast and easy!
