August 2019 Recipe Round-Up: Summer Cookout & Picnic Recipes

Enjoy your summer weekends while the sun is high with this collection of cookout and picnic recipes designed to delight.

Tomorrow  August begins.  Where has the summer gone?

Well  not totally  gone yet as we still have a good four to six weeks to get out  in the sunshine and do our favorite things, and at some point you are  going to be hungry,  right?

One of  my favorite things has been to get out to the  parks and hike, enjoy the air, the sounds of birds, see deer scampering through the woods, and hunt for fossils. And then picnic in the shade of some  wise old oak.

Here is a blast from the past of me doing just that- at Dixon Spring state  park  in Golconda Illinois, early 1980’s. Lots of  fossils in those rocks! (and one giant one on  top!)

Yep, that’s me. I am  in there somewhere, if you look hard enough!

Today I am  rounding up with blogging friends to share lots of gorgeously plated delicious food and drink. Take a peek!

And don’t forget to check back on the first day of each month to see our themed monthly recipe round-up for your menu planning inspiration.
