SATURDAY POST 38
Merry first day of August!
These hot, hazy days devoid of rain drag, drag, draaaaagg on. July was officially the longest month on record.
Having finished my ginger-mint cantaloupe frozen yogurt after lunch yesterday (I do what’s necessary), there’s no time to waste deciding on a new cold dessert. You may already have seen this, but DYK know about the loaf pan popsicle hack? This simple four-ingredient version — almond milk (add cocoa powder) + bananas + nut butter + vanilla extract — is calling. A neat trick and treat!
Rain and clouds or heat and sun, I hope you have a lovely weekend, and enjoy a few favorite links from around the web.
This will be a happy month. I feel it.

Some interesting, fun, delicious reads:
- August is National Immunization Awareness Month highlights the value of immunization across the lifespan to protect health with vaccination against infectious diseases.
- Salads for summer loaded with fruit that aren’t “fruit salads.” This Fresh Basil Salad with Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon and Toasted Seed-Rolled Goat Cheese isn’t on the list, but absolutely should be. (Not familiar yet with Half-Baked Harvest? Be prepared to pin everything.)
- Drop-in chefs cooking for (and offering companionship) to home-bound seniors. This is the best!
- The problem with “sorry” from a New York Times viewpoint.
- Visitors are provided free paints and canvases every Sunday at Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT — “an invitation to be still, open your eyes, and chase the beauty of a moment passing.”
- This week’s pinned words of wisdom. (Keepin’ it Pooh-ish.)
Recently on HGN:
- Weekly Suppers: 20 – 24 July
- Heeding the sage breakfast advice of that lovable bear Pooh with a recipe for soft-scrambled eggs on toast.
