spt challenge - au naturel

now, before your mind reels, let me explain that i am talking about food items today!!

summer is upon us! (well, unless you live in Utah, in which case...) we just bought a new grill, and i am almost jumping for joy at the whole new world of dinner options that has been opened! there is something so wonderful about easy summer meals. (and how is it that it seems easier to fit veggies into a summer dinner than a winter dinner?)

i do try to *focus* on fruits and vegetable that are in season. i can't say that my families' little attempts at eating fresh and local have made any difference in the huge world of the mass production/transportation/extended storage conundrum. but i do know that fresh tastes better!!

the strawberries have been excellent this year! are you enjoying Nature's bounty? what are you snacking on? we're keeping it "au naturel..." - leave the HFCS and partially hydrogenated oils out of this picture!!

You had me so scared there for a minute, Lelly!

And yeah, we have 3 inches of new snow today! What the?! Summer vacation starts in 4 days, by the way.

I bought stuff to make beef stew today because our weather is so cold and wet...can you believe that?

This one may be challenging for me.
