For Sunday dinner, I wanted to make something special for our grandkids who were coming over to eat and swim. I bought a small sliced Smithfield ham and decided to do rice and a salad and deviled eggs. The Mikester surprised us all with his Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce to go over the rice; his addition was a complete success!
We are enjoying the summer produce so much and the Corn and Mexican Squash recipe not only tastes good but makes the vegetables taste wonderful and in a different way.
I noticed that some markets have fresh strawberries on sale so I experimented and made an old family favorite -Thompson's Strawberry Pie. I took some to a neighbor and we each had a slice. If I keep the entire pie, there seems to be a "mouse" who slowly gobbles up it up, and "he" doesn't need a lot of extra sugar.

You know it's really summertime when I get my gardening and watering finished and come inside at 8:15 a.m.
Have a good week in Parker County, be sure and visit your favorite farmer's markets.
