OF FOOD AND FIRE WORKS. WE LIVE IN THE COUNTRY SO WE HAVE A
GOOD PLACE TO BLOW UP WE MIGHT GO SEE A FIRE WORKS SHOW THIS
YEAR THAT WOULD BE A FIRST BUT I AM SURE I WILL NEED TO COOK NOT

It will just be my husband & me, but plans are for turkey kabobs.

I have a large Shady Brook Farms marinated turkey tenderloin in the freezer that I plan to thaw out & cut into bite-size chunks & grill on kabobs, along with marinated veg kabobs, probably consisting of whole large mushrooms, chunks of Vidalia onion, chunks of zucchini & yellow summer squash, & chunks of red pepper.

Will probably serve it over a yellow rice mix with a green salad on the side.

What's nice about this is that the kabobs come out just as tasty if the weather doesn't cooperate & I have to do them under the broiler.

Precisely, Mudbug!

Still, it would be nice if people here realised that some of us were traumatised by the events of 1776.

Not sure... we've been invited to a party but I think we'll stay home where it's calm and quiet.

We'll do some bbqing.

We're going to a friend's house like we do every year. His mom makes a feast. Enough to feed 30 or more people easily. Hot dogs, hamburgers, Sausage and peppers, 3 or 4 different salads, brownies, cookies...
you name it, it'll probably be on their kitchen tables
