July 4, 2012 - Menu/Plans?

Any plans? Are you staying at home or going out of town? What's on the Menu?

Buon Giorno,

Sorry, to report however, I believe this is a duplicate thread in the Forum Off Topic Section or the Holiday Section.

Obviously, it is not a holiday in Spain nor Italia, thus, as we do every year, we invite dear friends, who are Expats over to celebrate on the Sunday prior, as the 4th is a laboral day.

I am planning the carte at this very moment ... Since it is quite like Death Valley here, dry dry, sunny and contaminated and polluted; we shall do lunch in Air Conditioning ...

Good thread Idea.

Grazie,
Ciao, Have nice Sunday.
Margi.

Thanks for getting me thinking. Probably something on the grill. My husband and I met on the 4th (32? I think, years ago) and I try to make it special. This summer is just racing by me. We live in a small town, and there's always a parade, but it is usually very political, and this being an election year, we may just skip it. We watch our fireworks from home. Maybe someone will invite us somewhere.

It is not the day celebrated in Canada, either, however, I'm hoping that the potatoes will be ready so I can make a potato salad using new potatoes and homemade mayo on Canada Day. We're going down to NY this week (just for the day). I'll check to see what meat is on special...

We're invited to go to a friend's home . I expect she will do a kind of pot luck menu, so I'll offer to bring something and see what she would like. Should be a good day. They are lovely people.

The missus and I are staying at a bed & breakfast on the 3rd and spending the 4th in the town of Stillwater, which is a touristy little burg on the Minnesota-Wisconsin border. My wife will probably do some antique shopping, while I just look for a place to sit down, have a drink, and beat the heat.

I have not seen another thread for July 4 (next week). Perhaps you are thinking of Fathers Day (past).

Thanks for the positive replies.

How romantic, Claire. Happy Anniversary in advance. We can see the fireworks from home, as well. Still undecided here too. Hoping for some menu inspiration from the good folks here. Happy 4th, Claire.

Tell us more about your potato salad, CWS.
