Independence Day Traditions

We have a few of the common ones. Watermelon, roasting marshmallows, and fireworks, to name a few. Lots of fireworks. Strangely enough, this year I don’t think we’re getting around to the marshmallows or the fireworks because…well, when it doesn’t get dark until 9:00 pm and you have 4 small children, it makes for a REALLY LONG EVENING between the sugar and adrenaline of marshmallows and fireworks. So we’re passing this year in favor of children going to bed at a normal time and Mommy and Daddy watching a grown-up movie. On the couch. Next to each other. It’s been a long time since we did this.

Because we like the occasional dive into the un-ordinary, here are a couple things that are traditions for us that you probably won’t see in every household. Not surprisingly, it’s food related. Because I do love my food…



Recipes soon.
