There is so much going on this month. The World Cup, Father’s Day and were you aware that June is officially National Candy Month? To off-set our love of candy, this month is also National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable month! How can we combine all of these events?

I have to say, I am not much of a sports fan but it is exciting watching all the players compete against each other, striving to do their best for their team and their country. My son, who is a sports addict supports “The Gunners” (An English team -Arsenal). I have never really understood the teams for the World Cup. Certainly in the UK, the team players are drawn from other teams all around the country to make up the “World Cup Team”. I personally think that is not a very good idea – they do not really have enough time to play together and get to know each other’s foibles. That of course is my opinion, which is probably completely incorrect!

My Dad passed away a number of years ago but he would have loved National Candy Month – he had a very sweet tooth. In fact, as a small child I remember him making cake sandwiches! and he loved biscuits (cookies) also. Come to think of it, he loved anything sweet. He was one of the lucky ones who NEVER put on any weight. He just seemed able to eat whatever he pleased without any real consequences. He and my mother were both great cooks and bakers. I am sure that is where my love of baking comes from.

Enjoy all of the events of this month – I’m sure the Dad’s will be enjoying the World Cup.

Happy visiting with the Dad
s of the world.
