The menu for July 4th has been set and I am super excited to eat this meal. 4th of July is my favorite holiday, and in years past we have celebrated with a house full of people and a party that begins in the early afternoon and goes well into the night. This year is different for a number of reasons. The first one being that the 4th falls on a Wednesday, so no late night cavorting. Also, Husband decided to go to work that day and then take off Friday for a three day weekend, so no party starting at 2:00pm. It also looks like most of the kids will be gone. It will be just the three of us and a late dinner, I kept it simple.
Sliders, with caramelized onions and fresh tomatoes
Fruit, local strawberries and blueberries have just begun to arrive
A green salad from the garden,
Grilling pound cake is a new thing and I have high hopes for this recipe.
Because it is a weeknight, the cocktails will be tame, maybe Campari and San Pellegrino?
What are your plans for the 4th?
