Memorial Day is Monday, which means Summer is just around the corner. For our family, our flag comes out and stays out until September: BBQ's, watching Baseball games and Confederation Cup soccer, reading books for pleasure, and traveling anywhere by the ocean is the order of the day. As the weather heats up, strawberries are at their peek and Ina Garten's Strawberry Country Cake is the perfectly fresh, not too heavy, delicious dessert to serve to your family and friends. I will be making this over the weekend!
My heart felt thanks to the men and women who served and are serving. In honor of your service I have chosen three paintings of Frederick Childe Hassam's Flag series.
Home of the free, because of the brave.
Happy Memorial Day!
