It's Summertime

There's nothing better to cool you off in the summer time than a delicious, cold watermelon.

The first day of summer and I picked our first cucumber. It's a refreshing treat on a warm day.
For supper tonight we had cole slaw and chef salad and cauliflower with cheese sauce all compliments of our veggie garden. I hope you are enjoying the fruits of your labor. My DH said he planted the seed for the cauliflower on March 4 never realizing he'd be enjoying it on his plate the first day of summer.

Cheese Sauce for Veggies

2 T. margarine melted in pan

Stir in 2 T. flour

Whisk in a cup of milk over medium heat and let it thicken for about a minute.
Add about 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese to your taste and let it melt. Sprinkle on salt and pepper if you wish.


If you want to make a cheesy dish real fast, just throw on a slice of American cheese (I usually get the slices made with 2% milk.) Place the dish in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to melt over the veggie.  Sometimes the cheese melts as soon as it is placed on the hot vegetables.

  1. Lots of yummy vegetables! I didn't plant anything this year, but will enjoy visiting our local Farmer's Markets each week. The watermelon looks tasty!
