Seriously, though… where is it?

What’s good my friends?!  I hope everyone had a fun 4th of July weekend who celebrated.  I was able to take a few days off to relax and recharge, including spending some time in the garden setting up a new cinder block bed (cheapest way to build a garden bed and grow food for ~$1.75/block), … Read More...

With the fourth of July just around the corner, I wanted to whip up some fresh salad ideas that can be served as sides for weekend festivities.
