August is always a time of holding on. Holding onto the last full summer month, of last minute vacations, and racing against the clock to get in all your summer activities. But, it is also the time to slow down. It is the time to enjoy evenings outside with delicious food and good company. I always suggest a savory and sweet plate with cheese, fruit, and of course granola! Gather around the table with good food, good company, and good conversations for a fulfilling and relaxing end to yet another great summer.
