I finally got some herbs planted on my deck! One thing I love about summer is cooking with fresh basil, parsley, thyme, and mint. I think I'll make some mint tea this weekend.
Strawberry season is pretty much over, and I used some of the last local berries to make strawberry pink lemonade. I made it last New Year's when we had our A Walk To Remember party, and it was good; but this batch was heavenly.
Look what I happened upon the other day in the paperback section of my grocery store:
Sometimes a new cover design on one of Nick's books means there is a movie coming out in the near future. Alas, I'm afraid that isn't the case for this one. I guess the publisher decided it was time The Rescue had a fresh new look.
Last weekend some dear friends had a cookout to celebrate the end of the school year. I brought the stuffed mushrooms I made for The Wedding, and they were a huge hit!

Word to the wise: If someone invites you to their wedding, it's bad form to say, "Sorry I can't make it, but I'll come to your next one."
We're having a picnic on Saturday (my family doesn't know that yet, tee hee) and I'll be making chicken pesto sandwiches. And I haven't forgotten about that barbecue recipe; it's next on my Cooking Nick's Books to-do list. Have a fabulous weekend!
