It is August 1st and time to showcase some new blog posts through the Country Fair Blog Party, which I'm happy to be a co-host of. Before we show this month's link-up, I'm going to share my three Blue Ribbon winners from July's Country Fair Blog Party:
Maple Bacon Ice Cream guest post by MiMi. Actually, this recipe may have hit my holy grail of recipes - bacon, ice cream and breakfast. That's right, she serves this maple flavored ice cream with bacon on top of a waffle! It makes me reminisce about my job as a waitress in high school. As a treat on late shifts (the time of night where people can't decide if they should have a sandwich and fries, or pancakes and eggs) I'd sometimes make myself a waffle and serve it with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream. Yum!
All Natural Fly Spray. If you live on a farm you are always in search of a good fly spray for your livestock. A lot of fly sprays have a pretty potent smell and you're always in search of a hydrant so you can wash your hands off right away after spraying it on your animals. Tracy didn't care for commercial fly sprays for some of the same reasons so that is why she did some research and made her own homemade recipe. This fly spray also helps repeal ticks, mosquitoes and gnats too. I hope this post is a big help for the rest of the summer and fair season!
The Day I Stopped Trying to Get Perfect Photos of My Kids. I think with kids and photos you've got to just go with the flow at times. I remember being disappointed when it seemed like we could never get the "perfect" photo but now I look at some of those "not so perfect" photos and find 10 things I like about them. I then love the photo and think it is perfect. I've even blogged about my "10 things" take on photos. LC shares about her turning point of what a "perfect" photo really is in her post. A good read for any Mom with small children!
