I’ve been up since 7 am in preparation for today’s celebration. Our plans are small as our family is scattered. On the menu: grilled hamburgers, grilled corn, kebabs of squash, tomato, onion, and zucchini, my mom’s potato salad, watermelon, grilled pineapple with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce, and peach ice tea. We might take in some fireworks later.
What makes up your celebration? Is there something you have to have or something you have to do? Do you have any time honored traditions? What makes the Fourth of July the Fourth for you? What makes it special?
I’d love to hear your traditions , comments, and recipes if you’re willing to share. Either post a comment or send me an email. I’ll feature some of them in the food and recipe page.
Happy celebrating and a big thank you to our servicemen and servicewomen, veterans, police, firefighters, and emergency personnel for giving your lives and service every day.
