Hi <<First Name>>


The weather has finally (sadly) turned hot in Phoenix. But we’re still moving forward to finish our landscaping project. We've laid hundreds of bricks around our pool and built a brick path from the pool to our orchard path.

We’re doing some of the work early in the morning and some after dinner. And we’re grateful to have some of our kids and friends who have pitched in to help.

It’s going to look beautiful when it’s done.

Chick-fil-A has an annual Cow Appreciation Day - sometimes called  “Dress LIke a Cow Day” others call it "Chick-fil-a Day." It occurs each year at the beginning of July. And it is celebrated by more than 1.8 million people.

Summer Recipe: Asian Cabbage Salad  

This is one of our all-time favorite salads to eat any time of year!  Easy to make and great for taking to potlucks, big events, entertaining or as a veggies recipes side dish for dinner. If you don’t finish it all at one meal, just be aware that the ramen noodles will get soggy and the nuts will get soft. You may want to toss those on individual servings instead of mixing them in.

If you add diced cooked chicken you can have a one-dish dinner! This is also a great side dish for summer BBQs like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day. It works great because the cabbage is much slower to wilt than a green lettuce salad.
