I know I say this pretty much every month, but how is it August 1st! July was a busy month for my family; between 4th of July, family vacation, county fair and my annual girl's weekend - the time flew by. August doesn't look like it's going to slow down either. We have VBS, State Fair, a family wedding and school starts. With so many things going on during the summer, the Country Fair Blog Party is a great way to share what you've experienced and how you like to enjoy your summertime.
Before I share the link-up for this moth's Country Fair Blog Party, here are the Blue Ribbon Winners from the July Blog Hop:
Best of Long Island and Central Florida's New York Push Cart Onion Sauce, was the most viewed post from the link-up! Congrats to Linda on getting the most clicks and receiving a Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon! I have to admit, when I saw this post linked-up I clicked on it right away because I thought it'd be perfect to put on some of my homemade brat burgers. I love how the "sauce" has both onion and red pepper in it. This recipe is easy to whip up and a great topper to use this grilling season.
Cooking with Carlee's Ultimate BLT Pasta Salad. My family and I are huge pasta salad fans. I bet I make a pasta salad each week during the summer. So when I saw Carlee's spin on Pasta Salad, I knew I had to make it. The recipe has the typical BLT ingredients in it, plus two ultimate ingredients, that make this a perfect summertime side dish.
Farming Grace Daily. Her post, "But what if I don't want to farm, Mom?" is a great parenting post for ALL Moms and Dads. My Farmer and I work hard so our kids have the opportunity to carry on our family's farming legacy, but at the same time - we aren't going to force it onto anyone. We will work hard to give them resources to succeed no matter what path they choose to go down. There is a reason why I tell everyone that I farm "corn, 'beans, pigs and KIDS" - because the most important "crop" I'm raising is our kids.
