Can you believe that the 2016 is half over? It seems like just a few weeks ago that we were watching New Year’s Eve fireworks – now we’re about to enjoy another round on the Fourth of July.
Before we turn the (virtual) calendar page, though, let’s check out some of the fun and flavors we’ve enjoyed together in June.We’ve had a bit of everything, in keeping with our “Theme Days” – from wine judgings to new recipes; restaurant recaps to various National Food (and Drink) Holidays.
And we’re featuring an extra-special post by my daughter Siri about her two weeks in Italy (top pic).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~We also celebrated National Seafood Month with posts about National Sushi Day and World Oceans Day.
What about libations? Among other things, we kept our Thirsty Thursday “not-always-wine” streak going on International Cachaça Day.
It was a great excuse to honor Brazil’s tasty national cocktail – the Caipirinha – just in time for the Summer Olympics.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I’ll check back in with you tomorrow, with a preview of what’s “on the menu” for you as we kick off the second half of the year.
Meanwhile, I hope you’ve enjoyed this look back at June.
And don’t forget, we’re counting down to Drink Wine With Dinner® Day on August 15, to honor Julia Child’s birthday. (Julia would be 104 this year).
Lots of big plans on the horizon – and I look forward to sharing all of them with you!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Until next time, my friends –
