I can't believe we are in June already, where has the first part of the year gone, it seems to have just whizzed right by! June celebrates the start of the British Summer and this year the longest day is on 21st June. Hopefully this month we will see a lot of sunshine!
To celebrate Summer Solstice I've created a summer solstice salad which is jam packed with fresh and vibrant flavours and with natures helping hand should increase your energy for the longest day of the year.
June also includes some other weird and wonderful celebrations, such as World Environment Day on the 5th June, Pink Day on 23rd and Social Media Day on 30th.
The menu for this month celebrates Fathers Day on Sunday 15th June, Eat your Vegetables Day on 17th, International Picnic Day on 18th, the Summer Solstice on 21st and the fantastic Chocolate Pudding Day on 26th!
June is also Camping Month so the specials this month will be specifically for all you campers out there. The recipes will be easy to make just using a camping stove, quick and just as tasty as home cooked food. I'll let you know my little secrets when preparing for a camping trip.
Want to know what today is................. its go barefoot day, so throw off those shoes and socks and take a wonder round your garden.
