A full July moon in North America is often called the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon. At this time of year, buck deer begin to grow velvety antlers, while farmers are working to put hay in their barns, and trying to avoid the summer season’s frequent thunder showers. Of course here in Minnesota, we are just trying to stay cool.
Here are some really easy food ideas. One requires no cooking.
- Diced strawberries
- Mozzarella Pearls (balls found in deli)
- Dark Balsamic Vinegar good quality (I used Chocolate Balsamic)
- Fresh basil
- Mix fruits, mozzarella pearls and drizzle with balsamic.
This was the perfect amount for 2 for lunch.
- Cooked chicken slices or pieces
- Red and yellow mini sweet peppers
- Grated Colby Jack cheese (cheddar would work too)
- 6 inch flour tortillas
- Olive oil
- Stir fry onions and peppers in a little olive oil. Add in chicken pieces to warm them up.
- Heat pan that has been lightly greased. Place chicken mixture on one half of tortilla.
- Fold other half over and cook until warm, cheese melts and toasted on both sides.
