You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.  ~Erma Bombeck

                                       Happy 4th of July!



  1. Oh! That IS a sweet thought, and I hadn't thought of it that way before!

  2. Waffle irons rock. I highly recommend them. Also, is that no-knead bread recipe the one from Mark Bittman? I bought a six-quart Dutch oven just so I could make that. I haven't yet, but I will

  3. Becki, I'm pretty sure the recipe is by him--I know it was in the New York Times. I'm actually going to have to look it up again...and make sure I have a 6-qt. Dutch oven, or buy one.
