There's a article on fancy dining alfresco in the August issue of Southern Living. (This hostess doesn't use paper plates!) Another family created a cozy open-air addition to their home.
And check out a flashy flower--colorful dahlias. My favorite recipe in this issue is the lemon meringue ice-cream pie, but the tomato pie is intriguing. However, the highlight of this issue are the articles on the tornado damage, recovery and sharing in the southern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Missouri.
