Country Fair Blog Party: Summer Lovin'

It doesn't seem possible that today is June 1st!  But it does seem like summer has officially started as our family has signed up for the summer reading program at our local library, we've planned some day long trips to visit friends, family and new places, and we're starting to do some post-plant field work.  Before I get into all of this Summer Lovin, let's talk about last month's Celebrations Country Fair Blog Party.  Here are my three Blue Ribbon winners:

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner: Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats Fiesta Mac
There were so many reasons to celebrate in May, one of the firsts being Cinco de Mayo.  Now don't get me started on the Americanization and misinformation of this holiday and how I feel like it is turning into the new St. Patrick's Day, but anyways... I love any reason to eat Mexican food!  I love Ally's, of Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats, Mexican spin on an American classic:  Fiesta Mac.  This is a great dish for all families that love macaroni & cheese and tacos.  What could be better than putting them together, right?

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner: Little Blog on the Homestead's Mother's Day + Infertility
The next big celebration in May was Mother's Day.  I feel absolutely blessed and honored to have celebrated my fourth Mother's Day last month and to have three kids to celebrate with.  I know Mother's Day can be an emotional holiday for many reasons - those whose mothers have passed away, those whose children have passed away, and those that haven't been able to have children.  I appreciated Nicole's, of Little Blog on the Homestead, courageous and true post about her feelings as someone dealing with infertility.  She gave a few tips on how to celebrate with all Moms in her Mother's Day + Infertility... 5 Things You Should Know post.

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner: Oak Hill Homestead's I Hate Mowing the Yard
My last Blue Ribbon winner for the month goes to Kathi of Oak Hill Homestead.  She shared a neat and informative post on uses of wild plants in her I Hate Mowing the Yard post.  This post came at the perfect time last month as my interest had spiked about morel mushrooms and other wild edibles.  I actually have signed up for a wild edibles class that will share about plant identification and cooking preparation that I'm really looking forward to.
