Favorite Summer Potluck Recipes


Happy Summer. I know I know it's already nearing the end of July and I've been pretty quiet. There's a good reason for it and that is that our internet at the farm is for the birds. That's right the internet stinks. I'd love to post more and visit with you all more but it's been so hard with the internet so spotty.

My Niece

That being said the farm has been full all Summer with people, kids and animals. We have been cooking up a storm and having lots of pot luck suppers. Summer and potluck dinners just go together.
