Super Snacks Fit for Stargazing

The most anticipated meteor shower of the year – the Perseids – is coming our way soon. Peak viewing of this spectacular event will be the night of August 12 – 13. The Perseid meteor showers are visible every year when the earth passes through the debris and dust left by the Comet Swift-Tuttle.

Aug. 12 is the perfect night to gather with friends, family, and great food for a night of stargazing. #Perseid #meteorshower #recipes Click To Tweet
