Independence Day Freebie!

Howdy All!

We are running between the raindrops today! Whoo Hoo! Just the kind of day we love, soft rain, sleepy dogs, quiet music playing, ( Moody Blues, Doors, Sting, Bread) one could fall asleep standing up its one zen moment after another.  Ahhh!

I planned so much food for the 4th of July celebration that we had to start it last night! Grilled Bratwurst on wheat buns, potato salad, Sliced Watermelon, Rhubarb Pie. Today Grilled Pork Steaks, Apple Pie, Sweet Potato Fries. Tomorrow,  Grilled Rootbeer Chicken with a brown sugar rub, Macaroni and Cheese , Vegetable Shiska-bobs, and Peach Cobbler. For our actual Independence Day Celebration on Monday Grilled Sirloin Steaks, Baked Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, and Strawberry Shortcake topped with vanilla bean ice cream.

I just gained 5 lbs writing this! LOL!  

I get carried away at the grocery store. I write a list but the sales are so good I just grab more stuff. Its a curse my hubby LOVES! He, of course, is going to wash this all down with a crockpot full of Velvetta/Rotel Cheese Dip and a few bags of chips. I promised to make it last night and keep it warm throughout the weekend. His goal is to eat it all ( 40 ounces/1.18 L) before going back to work Tuesday. I don’t know how he stays so thin??  I unplug it every night and put it in the refrigerator so he doesn’t die. *wink* Long-term I can make no promises, the man has never met a vegetable he likes…unless you count deep fried okra. I don’t! HOOT!~

While we Cates are eating our way through another holiday, I have a little freebie for you, Americans to enjoy. There can never be enough flags or red, white and blue bunting, I guess. Our little town is all covered in it, since its one of those historic towns that ties itself in a bow each holiday! Independence Day is a big deal, Revolutionary War Re-enactments and all that Jazz! Actually lots of Jazz bands too! LOL!
