We at the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center would like to wish you all a happy and safe Independence Day! 

You’ll likely be enjoying some quality beach, boating or general outside time so be sure you check out our information on sun safety. ​​Fourth of July weekend is also one of the most popular times to grill out so be sure you keep things food safe with this information from our friends at NC State Extension’s Safe Plates Program. 

Perhaps you’ll be grilling up or cooking some of the first fruits from your home garden. You might like to try our grilled okra or the delicious grilled street corn recipe we shared at last year’s online fair. Or if you prefer to prepare your festive fare in the kitchen, take a look at this basil shrimp and tomato pasta recipe or try your hand at our creole jambalaya.

Be sure to stay up to date with all the latest classes and publications on our website, Eventbrite site, YouTube channel, and follow @CurrituckCES on social media outlets.
