Happy Birthday to US.
Some years ago, I saw what is, to this day, my favorite Fourth of July memory.
A photo of a boat, anchored somewhere in a river in England, bearing a sign that said:
"Happy Birthday America, Love Mom"
This year, I felt we should have a slightly more traditional July 4th meal. Something a bit like the foods Grammy would set out for us each holiday.
So, I made Guacamole BLT's, Barbecued Chicken & Veat (thanks, Matt), Potato Salad, Pasta Salad, Deviled Eggs, and a Deep-Dish Apple Pie; as well as some very sweet, but tart, Lemonade.
Lots of food, and like the stuff I grew up with, very well suited to grazing!
Happy 4th to my fellow Americans! Try not to eat too much...
Blog Party #12 has been announced, and we're celebrating a full year of appetizers and cocktails with a Passport Party. For July, we're traveling to our favorite places by way of the kitchen, with bites and drinks from our favorite countries. Entries are due Thursday, 20 July--early is always good--and I'll post the round-up 22 July. Hope to see you there!
