It's getting close. Just wanted to see what the choices were out there. For me and my brood - burgers, brats, dogs and of course numerous adult beverages. For July 3rd - hopefully rockfish from our fishing trip, July 5th - steamed Maryland blue crab.

Food with friends and a few prayers of thanks for what we have. Then I'm going to kill some paper target, well scare them anyway.

Good thing about a birthday on the 5th is I always get a holiday, fireworks and a large picnic.

Will be celebrating by walking the midway set up on THE major corner in the old home town, eating at food tents set up by the local churches, 4-H clubs and the American Legion. Then, fireworks at the football field with a cooler by my side.

The food will be neither spectacular nor particulary tasty: hot dogs, sloppy joes, chicken fried in cast-iron skillets -- no blue crabs or shrimp jambalaya or crab cakes or KC bbq out there. Just the taste of old memories of a simpler time.

Just twice? It is engraved in the cornerstone of our house that we must have catfish and hush puppies at the very least monthly. Sometimes I fry them in my mother's cast-iron fry-pan, sometimes I toss them into the deep fryer, but we must have our catfish fix.

Busy holiday weekend here on Long Island

07/03 - fireworks with my family in Amityville, NY (no not at the horror house)

07/04 - Playing the bagpipes in Southampton, NY with my pipe band American Celtic.   Nice parade with food and adult beverages and a bus ride home afterward.  After the parade I have a BBQ with the family at our friends house. I am sure the pipes will be played again as I will still be "in kilt"

Izzy, my birthday is on July 1st.  (1st day of Battle of Gettysburg, Battle of Malvern Hill).  As a kid we always celebrated on the 4th.

I hope everyone have a nice holiday!! Always remember the soldiers that have fallen for our country.

Yeah, makes me wish I'd started re-enacting sooner. Still, the cycle will begin again soon. I hope my friends who are attending send me a postcard.

One thing "these people" up here in Maryland have no clue to is fried catfish. Farm raised catfish (the only farm raised fish one should eat) is incredible. Miss the frcf, hush puppies, tomatoe relish, french fries (occasionally) with all the trimmings. People up on the eastern shore don't have an idea how good it is. The best fried catfish up here is at my house.
