Also in this summer month (which itself is National Hot Dog, Blueberry, Ice Cream, Baked Bean, and Picnic Month) you can plan on throwing parties for Canada Day (on the 1st...oops...how'd I miss that?), National Fried Chicken Day (the 6th), National Sugar Cookie Day (the 9th), National French Fries Day (the 13th, and yes, they still are called as such, tho' the French call them Belgian...), National Lasagna Day (the 29th, and we have a recipe just for that occasion), National Cheesecake Day (the 30th...perhaps we'll have to come up with something for this, too)...the list goes on.
Isn't it wonderful to be an American?
Only problem is that it makes our week look uneventful. We've been going on regular walks:
(a sweet sight on BYU's campus: a bunch of young ducks under a bush with their mom)
We had a few highlights between work and our normal errands, though. This week we went up to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple, which was enjoyable.
We also walked to the Provo Temple, which has been closed the last few weeks for its scheduled maintenance.
(the early bird gets the worm, but sometimes the late one does too... this was in the afternoon!)
Probably the most labour-intensive were a few cooking projects, such as Pumpkin Pancakes and Tortellini Alfredo with Mozzarella Sticks. Check them out!
