It's a steamy Thursday in July -- which just happens to be National Ice Cream Month. You can thank the late President Ronald Reagan for making it so (the ice cream, not the steam.) Now be a good citizen and do your part to celebrate by indulging.

Out in the blogosphere we've got summer recipes to make your mouth water and a handy guide to D.C. area county fairs. Did a New York congressman skip out on a D.C. cabbie or was it all a misunderstanding? Greater Greater Washington weighs in. And if we've got some advice for working off those extra ice cream scoops.

Break out the mixing bowls! It's time to get in touch with your inner gourmet. Macheesmo presents 60 summer recipes (complete with pictures so inspiring you’ll want to cook!)

David Alpert over at Greater Greater Washington tries to get to the bottom of whether a New York congressman did/didn’t stiff a D.C. cabbie. Turns out the old zone system isn’t the only thing confusing about cabs in the District.

Uh, ever heard of spell check? If this person had then Foggy Dew wouldn’t have been able to share this great post with us.

Funnel cake! Candy apples! The world’s largest pig! Yes folks, it’s county fair time in the D.C. region. A Parent in Silver Spring offers a list of all the D.C.-area county fairs (BTW: fab grilled cheese at the Montgomery County Fair).

Sleep skinny. Shelly at DC Ladies offers some advice for folks trying to trim their waistline in her post, “Weight loss rules you aren’t following.” I like these. . .one rule is to get more sleep. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz … !

Jaws. I wrote about “Chompy” earlier this week, but couldn’t resist this shot from Maryland Daily Photo.
