IDE A BOOK


Boy, do I love summer. Long days. Breezy nights. And, who doesn’t love a good ‘ol fashioned cookout? Summer is about relaxing, y’all. Not stressing in the kitchen. And that’s exactly what this book is all about—keeping things easy. That’s the beauty of a Smithfield Summer Spiral. Morning, noon or night, it’s ready when you are. Some folks like to heat it up. Some prefer to enjoy it right out of the package. I like to snack on it by the slice. This book will show you dozens of great Summer Spiral ideas, most of which can be made with stuff you already have in the kitchen. See for yourself and have a great summer.
