4th of July is my favorite holiday, after Thanksgiving. While I do love America, i love the fireworks, sun and BBQs even more. Let’s be real, summer BBQ food is what really keeps The 4th of July in the top two favorite days to eat all year. I like to make themed dishes like Freedom Fries (over done, i know, but mine were sweet potato, which makes it a bit better), Patriot Act Pies, Recession Rings, Barack Bacon Burgers, you get the idea…In commemoration of this great country, the food is usually fried and abundant.
This year, in solidarity with my friends down there, and the veggie trend that is sweeping the nation, I will be doing a farmers-market-fresh vegan dish, called the Donald Trump Dillies, which are my personal brand of dill pickles. Deep fried of course. It is America’s birthday after-all.
And to drink? We’ll be having my favorite, Save-the-Unions Sangria, which includes a few shots of brandy, a bottle of a red table wine (classy or not), a little less than a cup of fresh squeezed orange juice and some of these:
Have a great holiday! And please, let us know, what will you be eating?
