Welcome Picklers !
Here is your guide to enjoying the Juniest June possible.
June is the month to be outside, hopefully not because your home has been repossessed but to revel in the sheer majesty of nature’s splendor.
It’s a great opportunity to encourage kids to learn about nature, exercise and appreciate the importance of protecting the environment. It is also a cheap day out. ( Sorry kids, that seals it. Prepare to be educated. )
Why not plan stay out for 2 days or a week, maybe for the entire month, since June is also Camping Month … And that means MARSHMALLOWS ( now extinct in the wild ).
Before you set off, however, make sure you whip up some good old homemade Country Cooking. None of that instant microwaveable country cooking on a stick, mind you. The point is to try make those wholesome dishes from scratch, as Mother Nature intend, … y’know … after pots, ovens and stoves were invented.
But if you are not into baking the fancy nettle pies and skunk burgers eaten by the country kings and queens of old, you can celebrate June through the medium of Soul Food. Cook up a veritable storm of humble 1960s African American deliciousness from unappealing scraps you find in your kitchen. Although, you should avoid spare parts left over parts from any motorcycle maintenance conducted next to the stove because it was raining outside. ( Bikers deservedly have fearsome reputations but there are limits. )
Failing that, if you foster no desire to cook at all, you may satisfy your hunger with dairy products or candy.
Enjoy dipping your toasted marshmallows into your campfire cheese fondue but in moderation and as part of a balanced campfire diet or June may become known as the month of cholesterol and diabetes.
Lastly, avoid taking Gummy Bears on your camping trip as real bears may take offence.
