I Heart the USA...

Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. I love the heat, the pool, the fireworks, being with friends, and of course great eats. I was thinking about how lucky we are to live in a country that is not constantly in turmoil, where for the most part we all just get along. Then I went back to party planning mode and got a good laugh at our Fourth of July menu.
Teriyaki Chicken
Guacamole and chips
Hummus and pita chips
Strawberries with Fruit Dip
Insalata Caprese
Chinese Chicken Salad
Pasta Salad
Central Valley Fruit Salad
Hot dogs
Mexican and American Beer
Ice Cream
In no other place in the world would you find all these flavors mixed together to create a celebration of a nation's independence.
