We had a family friend who used to say summer only lasted from Memorial Day to the Fourth of July. This year, after a cool and rainy June, it feels as though summer is just getting started. Either way, there are fireworks and I hope to see as many as I can. I am also thinking of making a batch of biscuits. They are perfect multitaskers for this time of year, equally great sandwiching a piece of fried chicken with pickle slices and a drizzle of honey, or acting as a base for macerated fruit and piles of whipped cream.
