I'm not working the 4th this year for a change, so I'll work on the house, yard and vehicles that I've been neglecting! In the evening we'll be cooking out on Sis's deck. Steaks, burgers, brats and regular hot dogs.
Pasta salad, tater salad, slaw and deviled eggs.
Will do a repeat on our deck on Saturday with other friends and family who can't make it Friday.

Wasn't going to do anything. Then, my brother's wife called me a few minutes ago and invited me to join her and Kevin at her uncle's house for a meal and fireworks in Paducah on the riverfront afterwards. It'll be a nice diversion.

I'm glad you are going Katie - try to enjoy the fireworks. My folks and sister's family are coming to my house - lazy day in the pool with cocktails. Might try to catch a parade in the morning - my town gives a beautiful fireworks display too -- looking forward to it. Foodwise, very unamerican, we are ordering chinese food - the most work I will do is pick up the phone to order.

Katie, good, good, good.
It's good to be with folks, especially when you know you can up and leave anytime you want.
Enjoy the diversion.

Tonight it is off to the Arlington Racetrack with the church Deacon and a few others, he works there and has reserved as a great spot on the green to watch their fireworks show.
Tomorrow afternoon is the church BBQ, and then home to let the kids set off their fireworks (Illinois is one of those poppers, smokers, and sparklers only states). Then I will probably do my BBQ on Sunday :)

Hot dogs (those belly buster kind) homemade baked beans, chips and homemade blueberry pie after we get back from Sarasota for the annual 4th boat races. Did I mention beer? Oh yeah. And DW will be the DD to and from the boat races.

Well why else would I be cooking something as drunk proof as hot dogs

We'll have burgers on the grill, if it doesn't rain, and pray my son-in-law doesn't blow himself up shooting off fireworks after drinking a case of beer.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Friday--nothing special..
food wise... Sirloin, Asparagus, corn on the cob ALL on the grill...

Saturday.... probably canoing. Looks like a beautiful day...
Saturday night... pork loin on the grill, more asparagus and corn(two of the greatest grill foods in the world). Maybe baked sweet potato...

Sunday.... what ever is left over from Friday and Saturday...
