Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Happy July 4th!

On this weekend of picnicking and sharing fried chicken and pimento cheese and whatever else strikes your fancy, this quote by one of my favorite food writers strikes my fancy:

"Southerners can't stand to eat alone. If we're going to cook a mess of greens we want to eat them with a mess of people." --Julia Reed

I love a mess of food with a mess of people! My family voted on corn on the cob and tomato sandwiches for the 4th. It's how we ate in the summer when we were growing up.

Oh, and watermelon.
