July is a fantastic month. It’s my birthday month. It’s the real start of summer. It tends to be slower, or quieter, if you will. I love July – it might be my favorite. And I love that there’s an official moment to celebrate the coming of July. Tomorrow Joey has off from work, his mom is in town, and my brother might come over. No better moment than now to get a little fête together. I’m thinking some veggies and dip, tabouli and raw slaw from Moosewood, some grilled sausages on buns, a big salad, cheese and crackers perhaps? Oh, and THIS. And a pie for dessert. And maybe some popcorn for fireworks (if we don’t get rained out!). Grazing. It’ll be a grazing kind of day. Because there’s no better way to indulge in slowness.
