Happy Fourth of July
Ours was tasty one. The ribs came out great and Meryl brought some very very delicious corn.
The fireworks, alas, were a bust. A line of thunderstorms bulled their way through just as we sat down for dinner a bit after 5:00 pm. The winds were impressive, tossing about the trees and doing some serious damage up by the fireworks site.
Of course we did not know this until we headed up there at 7:30. The roads were blocked and the troopers redirected us away from the show grounds. We didn't know what was up until we found an electronic billboard informing us that the fireworks had been canceled. I was a bit peeved because I did call the special events hot line number and checked the news websites before heading out.
But as I said the food was fabulous. We set off some sparklers outside and had a little show inside when I made Bananas Foster for dessert.
