We are having a cookout today at my sister-in-law's house. I am always in charge of baked beans - I can make them in my sleep. I will also take some low-carb things. Meat off the grill is always OK - it's no big deal if I don't have a bun. I stab it with a fork and chomp away.
Wednesday evening I will be helping with the meal for the participants on our Garden Tour that I help arrange. I will be making jello pretzel salad, baked spaghetti, sun tea, and the bread for my part. There will be 6 couples there and the lady and myself who are in charge of the tour and the meal. The money goes for the restoration and maintenance of an historic building here in town - The Mansion House Inn & Tavern. It used to be a stagecoach stop and the old log cabin courthouse along with a railroad shanty is on the property.
I will probably just eat before I go.
Here's the link for you to see some pictures I took for advertising:
Hope your Independence Day is truly great. Let's remember the men and women who are away from their families today in a foreign country defending freedom. My quilt group just took one of our Quilts of Valor to the funeral home for a 20-year old Marine killed in Afghanistan.
America: The land of the free because of the brave.
I also saw a bumper sticker that read: If you can read this, thank a teacher; if you can read it in English, thank a soldier.
