Oh man goodgiver I feel for you. Not too long ago I had around 18 inches of water in my basement. Luckily this time around my house didn't flood.
Good luck with the cleanup.

Goodgiver - I'm sorry, I wish you had a better day planned.

Mish - tomato kabobs - recipe - NOW! Oh my gosh, does that look good! Please share the recipe!

Us for the 4th - inlaws in, family will be over - haven't decided yet - either ribs with cheesy potatoe casserole or burgers and dogs with pasta salad - I still have time, right? And if I get the recipe from Mish - those kabobs!

Goodgiver, I've been wondering if any of our dc friends lived in the affected areas. I hope the rain and flooding lets up there. We have our share of weather problems, but flooding isn't one of them. Hoping the best for you and your family.

Cut up some crusty bread (Italian/French), thread everything on skewers - cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, bread chunks, mushrooms (if you like), brush evoo over all, and grill just till the cheese is melty and the bread is toasty. Thinking I might make grilled chicken breasts marinated in teriyaki sauce, minced garlic and scallions, and some grilled pineapple to go with. I'll probably wind up with burgers and hot dogs though. Wouldn't seem like the 4th without 'em. Your plan sounds delish too.

Hi Kimbaby, I am not sure yet. Rickell started a thread on here for July 4, so I've been reading in there to get some ideas. Your menu sounds delicious!

We're celebrating birthdays that day - my oldest Aunt turns 90 on the 5th and my oldest son turns 30 on the 8th. It will be a BBQ day for sure - smoked chickens and briskett, potato salad, cole slaw, baked beans, and whatever else Mom and my Aunts decide needs to be on the menu.

You're absolutely correct MichaelFW! But there was a commemorative march at Bannockburn last Saturday which we did celebrate!

not at our house

wheeeeooo, i love the 4th but like i said earlier my family brings enough
fireworks to blow the house up and everyone elses. we are not just talking about the stuff
you get at the firecracker stand the the big ones that rattle your windows and shake everyones toes.

waiting for someone else to say it is here this year, well my sister did...

she keeps asking think my yard is big enough? oh yea i say. keep the
hoses ready. most shows last 25 to 45 mins or so this will be at least
3 hrs. good it is not at our house. probably next year.


anyway doing pork, sausage, mac and cheese, salad and maybe german
chocolate cake. and pineapple see what everyone else brings.

cocktails for sure

happy fouth

God bless America
