Fourth of July Food

I love that the last two days have been GORGEOUS. It is about time summer got underway if you ask me. I have Sly & the Family Stone on repeat.

The only downside is that I have this summer cold that I don't know what to do with. It started two weeks ago with a wicked sore throat, then went dormant for a week and yesterday it reared it's nasty little head in a fierce way all over again. Can't swallow, painful hacking cough, pressure in the ears and sinus, everything buzzes and aches... you know the drill.

It's really kicking me in the face right now.
*insert frowning face here*

But I am the Queen of Neversaydie, and also the Queen of Takeeveryonewithyouwhenyougo so I went forward with my 4th of July feast.

The new (old) red table!


Chips, salsa, and guacamole.




No 4th Feast is complete without condiments and sides!



Burgers & dawgs & Wonder bread rolls & buns.
And corn on the cob.


We made ice cream sundaes for dessert.

This is how I would like to eat every single day. But then I probably wouldn't appreciate it. And frankly I couldn't afford it.

I would also like to just take a minute to say how really grateful I am that I am an American living here in America. I am truly grateful that I have hot and cold running water from a tap, that I am not in constant fear of attack, that I have plenty to eat, and a safe place to sleep every night.

And I know that there are other great places to live in the world, and that this country has a full share of crazy, but it's where I call home.
