Things I Am Digging – July 2018 Edition

I hope you all are having a great day and enjoying this Friday the 13th! We just finished up our grilling series and next week we will move on, but now time for a break. Occasionally, I like to take a break from the cocktails and recipes to deliver a state of the union, of sorts. Really, it is my chance to share some of the things I am enjoying right now. There mostly is no rhyme or reason to this list, just things that stick out in my brain as being things I am enjoying. So, here we go!


We are in the thick of it and I am not going to complain too much about the heat. Our Summer is just too short to spend time complaining about the warmth. It is true, that the saddle seasons (Fall and Spring)are generally more comfortable, but I love being able to get up and go for a walk without having to put 10 pounds of clothing on. My dog, Kate Winslet (pictured above), sees things a bit different. You can find her plopped down on an Air Conditioning vent most days. We try to take a few walks a day, but the heat is not her friend.\

The Garden!

Along with Summer comes a garden, which I love. Let me qualify that I am not the gardener. Ashley is the garden bug and she is growing up a storm! Not only is she growing my favorite (shell peas), but she is growing a bunch of other stuff. Pictured below is a baby Carolina Reaper.

Ramshackle Pantry Improvements

Holy buckets, we have been at this for over a year. It amazes me just how much improvement we have made from one of our first posts to the likes of some of our most recent. It actually makes me really proud of just how far we have come. I hope you like reading and if you do, let a friend know about Ramshackle Pantry!

    So glad you’re enjoying the summer! I am too, but I’m willing to complain about the heat!
