Due to a series of events last week, it turns out that we are spending the Independence Day Holiday at home this year. Actually this is fine with me.....I love to travel and I love to go to special events.....but I like to stay at home as well. I'm pretty easy that way.
We're also having to use some self control with the bowl of strawberries.....okay, actually we have no self control when it comes to these and have eaten quite a few of these already since I took the picture this afternoon. They're very hard to resist, so why not?
I also made a jar of sun tea this afternoon and now have it chilling in the fridge. Does anyone else like to have a big cold glass of sweet iced tea for breakfast in the summertime? I grew up in the South and iced tea goes with any meal, right?
Jim or Christopher are usually the ones who man the barbecue in the family, while I make the sides. I've had my copy of The Summer Book by Susan Branch for several years now....it's such a cute book I'd enjoy reading it even if I never made any of the recipes. I have, however, used it quite often over the years so this weekend I pulled it out and chose the "Peach and Plum Crisp" to make for our July 4th dessert.
