SUMMER MENU-A-DAY FOR JULY ~ Lemon Pepper Swordfish


Every day in July I am featuring a SUMMERTIME menu-a-day. Use this as inspiration or for your daily meal plan! Make sure you check back each day on
Wildtree Cooking with Jen Warr to see what yummy menu I am suggesting.
The July 4th holiday may be over, but July 5th is also a special day in our family! Today is my Mum's birthday!! Bea (my son's version of Grammy) has been a major influence when it comes to my love and comfort for being in the kitchen. I grew up with a mother that made cooking dinner look so easy- and it was always delicious. So today's menu is to celebrate her birthday!!!!
Happy Birthday Mum...Bea...Joanie!!!!!
