August Newsletter, 2012 August 01 2012

It has been a scorcher this summer and I for one am ready for this heat wave to be over. I was thinking that we really haven’t had any cold weather since March! One thing that has kept me cool … our Peach Balsamic Vinegar with club soda and a squeeze of lime. So refreshing and no sugar!
