Live It Up!



I'm a pretty patriotic person and I really have no problem saying so. I think America rocks and don't feel a need to be bashful about expressing this belief. The 4th of July is fun. This year I am having one of my famous bouts with bursitis and I am at home while my sweet husband is off at a parade with the kids and grandkids, (picture my downward turned mouth corners, picture me glum), and then he's dropping by a rally of sorts after that. I will be attending the bar-b-que at my son and daughter-in-laws house this afternoon though, (nothing could keep me from going there!) I'm making crab cakes, and desert, (haven't decided what yet even though it is getting kind of late), and smashed garlic potatoes. I wish all of my readers the best holiday ever. Even if you aren't particularly patriotic the 4th is a good excuse to eat and be merry. All that, and fireworks too! Yay!

Yeah! B.B.Q. here! And then, watch the fireworks from our deck. Can't get any better. Happy Fourth. Sorry about the bursitis; I had a bout back in March that took me out for a while.

Enjoy the edibles and the bursting skies from your couch with your lightening bursitis. Best.

The crab cakes, and the sauce I made to go with them were a super big hit. I wanted to get a pic, but they went too fast. I hope you all had as great a day as we did.
