I am making Kayelle's marinated pineapple for my daughter's BBQ tomorrow. She is doing nothing today. And I can't say I blame her. This morning was beautiful, this afternoon meh.

We're going to grill some chicken legs and make some sort of cucumber salad I also have a bunch of veggies that need cooking; will probably throw those on the grill, too. I'm thinking of doing an Italian theme. I bought some fresh mozzarella marinated in oil and herbs yesterday. For the Fourth, we usually bike downtown with a bottle of wine and a snack and watch the fireworks. Because of Hurricane Arthur, tonight's fireworks were postponed till tomorrow but we're going to stay with my family in Oak Island, NC, for the upcoming week, so we can't go. So I'll serve that on crostini tonight.

The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again. ~ George Miller

Barbecued chicken and corn on the cob, maybe a few sides. Friends coming over and I have a local park with fireworks I can see from my back yard! :)

Not much here - watermelon, salads, and burgers. It's my son-in-laws birthday today as well, so my grandson and I spent the afternoon together while his mom and dad had lunch out.

I'll probably do what I usually like to do - walk down to the end of the street just after dark, where I can get a good view of the fireworks out at the fairgrounds.

Happy 238th Birthday, America!

Dinner was delicious and over here. It will be soon time to take down the flag that's been flying from the front porch of the house on this beautiful day. I'm reminded once again of how thankful I am to be born here in the USA. God bless America...always.

We had a great fireworks show here at my HOA! I had a wonderful time! Right in my back yard! I'm less than 1/2 mile from the park.

The BBQ chix was good too, served with chili corn and BBQ beans.

We had friends over for a cookout and grilled two full racks of lamb, with sides of sweet potatoes, green beans, and an all-American salad of Boston lettuce with Maytag blue cheese dressing. Dessert was strawberries stuffed with sweetened Mascarpone, and apple upside-down cake. I ate so much I was still full when I got up this morning and ended up skipping breakfast.

The lamb was some of the best I've ever had. Those little rib chops just melted in your mouth.

Didn't cook anything this weekend - Friday was spent cleaning the yard. Yesterday and today was spent at the hospital with my mom.
