What will you be having?

I know we'll have watermelon, but that's all I know for sure.

Are you carving the Watermelon? I have a friend who carves her watermelon to reflect different holidays. Think pumpkin carving only with watermelon.

If I were cooking for the crew, it would be grilled steaks, corn on the cob, broccoli salad, and homemade ice cream with fresh berries for dessert.

However, I think I'm on my own for the Fourth, so I'll likely have a quick salad and then head off to the movies. Popcorn and Hot Tamales for dessert.

Saw this yesterday and looked easy enough....FYI, I'd add a splash or three of triple sec and rum or vodka...or all three....

We're grilling turkey burgs and sausage dogs. Firework viewings on the roof. Although in the recipe above I said I'd add alcohol, there will be No alcohol for me this year. Doesn't bode well with my meds. bummer.

slh, Yessss, no drinking on the roof with meds.

My problem is that it is probably going to be stormy here, so I'm trying not to plan everything around the grill and it has left me...


We probably won't see any fireworks this year, either.

ETA: Actually, I'm trying not to plan ANYTHING around the grill. *sigh*
