With Liberty, Justice and Slow Food For All

Ah, the 4th of July. The moment has come to embrace vacation time off work, light up the grill and blow stuff up in our yard to celebrate the independence of America. With this comes tradition to gather and spend time with family and friends, so what better time to incorporate and rejoice the pleasure of food?

It wouldn't quite be the 4th of July without having a savory grilled dish.  Caw Caw Creek and Wil-Moore Farms are two of many local farms that provide sustainable fresh pork from their farm to your table. And as always, summertime is veggie time so don't forget to incorporate those green beans, corn and peppers from your farmer's market.

Recipe here.

These quick and easy pickles were a great way to use our extra cukes and dill. Easy and delicious? More for me, please.
