tuesday red white and blue

Looks like a Norman Rockwell painting, doesn’t it?  Americana, right there on the table at my brother’s farm.

4th of July is such a great time for family gatherings across the United States-and our family is no exception.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, cukes soaked in vinegar and onions with a touch of sugar – all served up on red, white and blue paper plates…it just doesn’t get much better than that.


How do you celebrate the 4th?  Are there “must haves” on the menu?  Do you use red, white and blue paper products?  I hope if you do, it brings a smile to your face knowing what it represents.


Happy Independence Day!  God bless America – the land of the free and the home of the brave.
