June brings a taste of freedom or at least a slightly slower pace or as the days grow longer and the nights warmer. Let's dig into what was awesome in June, friends. It's full of promise.
I feel like most of this month was spent holding my breath and enduring until the end of the school year. If you work in education or have kids in school, I bet you know what I mean. It's been the toughest year collectively that I can remember. Every single human was under added stress, whether things were going particularly poorly for us or not. Pretty much nothing was normal, so I hope everyone is finding a way to take a deep breath and make space for a little rest. If you can't, I'm sending you lots of love to keep going.
I cooked and shot and wrote and recorded my way through the month, but in between, we went out a couple times. We made burgers and Za'atar Potato Salad for a backyard family gathering, the first in many months. Hopefully, there's more of that to come.
The awesomest thing for me this month was the launch of The How to Be Awesome Podcast. I hope you thought it was awesome, too. If you haven't listened yet, you can check it out on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
Awesome Internet Food
I'm definitely looking forward to trying these Spelt Chocolate Chunk Cookies from Life Around the Table. I love the character these alternative grains can bring.
I'd also happily eat a whole box of Orange Donuts with Pomegranate Icing from Sugar Salt Magic. Just look at that gorgeous color. How could you resist?
I'm also very interested in these Lasagna Cups from Shutterbean. Lasagna was one of my favorite dishes as a kid. I bet these are awesome.
Your favorite recipes this month were Full English Breakfast, Strawberry Soju Slushie, and a Brown Elephant Cocktail. Drinks first, then a big fat breakfast the next morning. That's how to live.
July means freedom. Will we use it wisely? At the very least, we'll make it awesome.
