I'm thankful for our wild fruits! Remember the wild blackberries and the black raspberries the kids picked? Here they are served in a simple syrup over Alden's Organic Vanilla Ice Cream:I'm also thankful for our regular veggies. Nothing says summer more than fried squash (until the watermelons come on anyway). These are crook neck squash; we'll have the regular summer squash later in the month. Pre-cooked:Cooked:I'd like to wish all my American friends a very happy Fourth of July! For fun, sing the Star Spangled Banner at the top of your lungs in a public place. I just might do that. I love the U.S. national anthem much more than the Canadian national anthem. :)
