Hey hey hey! Welcome to my 4th of July Round-Up. Kramer and I are pretty excited for this weekend. We’ve both started new jobs recently and tried to hit the ground running in that regard, to being able to have a long weekend and get away to for a little bit is all too appealing. We rented a beach house with some friends in Asbury Park, so we’re off to Jersey this morning. If you’re in Canada, I hope you had a lovely Canada Day, but us Americans are extra lucky this year because the 4th lands on a Saturday. Sometimes it’ll be on a weekday and we’ll have a day off in the middle of the week, but then have to go back to work the next day, which cuts the fun short. Not this year, though! It’ll be three (or four, if you’re us) days of glorious sun, sand and surf. Theoretically. It’s not supposed to rain, but you know, shit happens. But not today! Not today. Either way, I wanted to gather up some of my favorite summery recipes for you to add to your arsenal for all of the barbecues and outdoor shindigs you’ll more than likely find yourself at all weekend. I’ve got cold salads, lots of veggies, some different grilled meat and fish recipes, a few cocktails and, of course, plenty of pies. Have a great holiday weekend and I’ll see you kids next week.
