I've Been Swamped

Hi all. Just in case anyone has been wondering "where or where have Louise's posts gone," I'm here to tell you that I have not gotten lost, or hoodwinked. I will be back to my regular posting on or before Independence Day on Saturday. In the mean time, I don't want you to miss the many delicious food celebrations arriving in July.

Thankfully, Deb the Fabulous Foodie has posted her Culinary Calendar for July. Yours truly has also compiled a collection of July Monthly Food celebrations including a few daily celebrations as well. You might have to make a quick hop on over to the Kettledrum to unveil them. I can just about guarantee you, you won't be disappointed.

July is...

I do realize many readers are preparing their menus for the Fourth of July so how about I just list a few monthly celebrations here without links. Here goes:
1. Watermelon Month
2. Blueberry Month
3. American Beer Month
4. National Grilling Month
5. National Ice Cream Month
6. National Baked Bean Month
7. National Bison Month
8. National Peach Month
9. National Picnic Month
10. National Hot Dog Month
11. National Culinary Arts Month

Today, July 2, is National Anisette Day. I don't have time to discuss my personal encounters with that tasty little glass of clear licorice like flavoring. However, I will tell you, Anisette is one of the easiest liqueurs to make at home. Here's a recipe I found @ An Herbal Bedfellow blog. See ya in a few! Louise:)
