(a special moment sharing stories)
So in order to keep me focused on maintaining a slow summer for our family and just for the fun of it, I am going to challenge you all to join me in my #slowsummerseries. Whenever you catch your family truly relishing the summer moments without rush, please join me by linking up your blog post or Flickr photos or use hashtag #slowsummerseries on Instagram or Facebook to inspire others to do the same. I will post a new Slow Summer post each week for you to link up to and before the next week’s post, I will choose a WINNER to receive a free e-book of their choice from Little Acorn Learning (there is a voting option through this link-up). This will be our first post to link to.
(family made summer corn salad)
This delicious Roasted Corn, Bean and Mango salad kept my girls and I busy for a good part of the afternoon yesterday. It was just at a time when they were feeling extremely bored and I was beginning to feel guilty for not taking them out of the house that day. So, I had them help me cook and they had so much fun and ate every last bit I gave them.
