Your Summer Bucket List

We spend all winter daydreaming about the long, hot days of summer. And then the days tick down toward Labor Day and a mild panic sets in. Have we had all the summer fun we can? Is there enough time left to squeeze it all in?

Of course there is. I asked others in the Land O’Lakes Test Kitchen how they plan to relax and enjoy these last, sweet summer days. Their answers reminded me of everything I love about this time of year.

Whether it’s embracing the best of the summer produce, encouraging your pint-sized entrepreneurs to set up a smoothie stand, or just relaxing with friends, we hope these ideas inspire you, too. And be sure to let us know how you plan to make the most of these fleeting summer days.
