Starting off in May we celebrate and honor those who have fought for the freedom we have here in the United States. Then in June we celebrate those who have worked their way through school and graduate from High School or College earning a diploma which allows them the opportunity to seek out a solid career and establish themselves in the adult world. Also in June we take a day to pay homage to the Dad's in our life - men who raised us, mentored us and provided for us. July we celebrate Independence Day and end the summer season of picnics and parties with a Labor Day celebration that includes spectacular fireworks displays.

Blackberry Oatmeal Bars with a Streusel Topping and sprinkled with some chopped walnuts is the perfect bar dessert to pack in school lunches, for an after school snack, or to bring to a party or picnic this summer! Planning a day at the beach? Well pack them in your picnic basket. They are so easy to make and they taste really, really good.

Memorial Day is coming soon and it has me thinking of days gone by and the many picnics we attended at family and friends homes. My thoughts turned to the dishes of old and one was the green bean salad that was typically made with green beans and waxed beans and sometimes had kidney beans in it as well. As a kid I shied away from those salads and stuck with what I knew I liked - basically potato salad and pasta salad.
