A little touch of sunshine in the fall. We're a family of four, it's fall and lemons are ready for the season. It was delicious! We all enjoyed the tart yet sweetness of the lemonade! So from my house to yours, enjoy! We did!!!!!!

I do Civil War reenacting and would love to have you join us at an event. Please.....I need help finding things to cook over an open fire, especially something easy. We are going to the Battle of 1st Manassas, Va this month (July21-24) and I am struggling to find something for us to eat in this hot weather that also travels well.
