our plans have changed. i found out that my company isn't going to allow anyone on the roof to watch the fireworks on the hudson, so we're gonna grill at home, hang by the pool, then go watch local fireworks.

lol, the come home and shoot off our own. i have saturn missiles, texas screamers, 4 and 8 oz. rockets - some with reports, some with colours, spanish butterflies, roman candles, short range smilies, and a few other things to appease my pyro soul.

i'm about to start building a firebox to make sure everything goes up, not sideways.

We are going up to our friends' house for grilled steaks and whatever sides she decides on. Then (unless it starts storming, which is a possibility) we will come down to our house to shoot off fireworks. They live in NC, where it is illegal to shoot off fireworks, and we live in SC, where it is legal. There is more room for everyone to eat at their house though, and their a/c is working and ours isn't. The temperature is supposed to get up to 100 by 6:00 p.m. It doesn't look at all like there will be a storm, but it didn't yesterday either, and there was a good-sized thunderstorm.

Salads-
Thinly sliced cucumber with onion, dill, EVOO, and cider vinegar.
Leafy green; with red onion, thinly sliced red radishes and cucumber, topped with diced Manchego, sliced hard boiled duck eggs, croutons fried in garlic and EVOO, King Oscar anchovies, and dressed with lemon, EVOO, and oregano. Unfortunately we did not have any tomatoes to brighten up the salad. Hope to make up for that with a few glasses of cuvee rouge.

Happy July 4 to my Southern friends! It`s nice to see that you are all eating well on this special day.
It`s just another day here. Worked all day building a loft over a garage. Meat and taters tonight. Roasted new potatoes, oven fried chicken breast, sauteed beet greens and steamed peas...

We had snow crab legs with fresh cucumber refrigerator pickles and corn on the cob. Strawberries with angel food cake will be dessert.
