This is the longest day of the year and worthy of celebrating. It’s “high summer,” as they say, because it’s downhill from here with the days getting shorter by one to five minutes each depending on where you live. This is hard to notice for about a month. Right now we’re enjoying daylight at 9:30 in the evening here in the desert and I love it!
It’s time to throw veggies from the garden onto the grill and enjoy them with the rest of your meal. Veggies that grill well are summer squash, peppers, eggplant, asparagus and onions. Simply slice them and toss in olive oil with salt and pepper and a little garlic if desired and grill for eight to twelve minutes. Delicious!
This is my sister Scherri Happy Birthday, lady!
Get together with friends and family, if it’s possible, and take advantage of the long sunny days because before you know it we’ll all be in the grip of winter again.
So everyone, do you have traditions for the longest day of the year?
