Hot dawgs and watermelon.

Motorcycle drive belt broke yesterday and it's going to rain. Guess we'll watch fireworks on TV.

Happy Fourth of July, fellow gourmands!

I will make calzone and pizza at home. Not sure if it's as good a Joe's of Avenue U.

Also mixed salad (lettuce, spinach, carrots, green bell pepper, celery, cucumber, fennel, tomato, radish), fruit (cherries, raspberries, strawberries, apricots), and later chicken wings and potato chips as the junk food.

Well, started the day with huevos ranchero on cornbread waffles and a mimosa, lunch will probably be a scounge meal and I've been neglecting some pork ribs for a week, so I guess I'll BBQ/smoke those with some canned baked beans and a salad from whatever's left in the garden.



Beer's on tap all the time, so there may be some of that.... or might have a cocktail.

Gourmet burgers and grass fed hotdogs, plus spaghetti squash with meatballs. Corn on the cobs and a garden salad. Peach cobbler and watermelon for dessert. Most of the vegs are from my garden except romaine lettuce and avocado.

Why not for America? I am assuming you are saying that tongue in cheek. We did have a wonderful strawberry, blue berry cake, made by our 12 year old great grand daughter last night but it was to celebrate the birthday of our country.

We had our big celebration yesterday. Normally we do a brisket or whoever hosts does one, but this year the price was so high we all agreed "forget it" We had brats, burgers and pulled pork: bar b cued beans: fruit: pasta salad that did turn out really good and the dessert made my our great grand daughter who loves to cook and bake.

Tonight we will do our usual happy hour with our friends but very early. When we get home we are having brats, left over pasta salad, beans in the intra pot and watermelon for spoiled brat. Then we will be watching the capitol 4th as we do every year. Our fireworks display is always the night before the 4th. It was last night, we didn't stay cause the traffic around the lake is so bad, plus someone among the 2 of us had way too much wine.

Strawberry margaritas, southwest turkey burgers, fresh corn salad, leftover macaroni salad and strawberry shortcake.

I’m thinking I should go make a margarita now, just to make sure they’re ok.

Hoping the neighbors off in the distance have their very good fireworks display. If so we can watch from the front yard.

I have a rack of ribs on the rotisserie at this moment, will be served with pinto beans, cole slaw and watermelon for dessert.

So far I've had a bowl of peanut butter Cap'n Crunch, two pieces of buttered white toast, a glass of juice, some steamed smoked kielbasa, four butter cookies and two beers.
I'll have one more beer for the ride to the track, two or three beers there and then stop at my sister's house for burgers and dogs.
If the Mexican joint near there is open, we'll get some tres leches for later.
