Friday, Food & Fireworks

For many, the holiday weekend has already started so today I am planning our family's festivities for tomorrow. Instead of grilling out hotdogs and hamburgers, we are going to have a summertime variation of Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey is all-American, so why not?

Yesterday's stop at a vegetable stand yielded lots of fresh fruit and veggies which will play the part of making the turkey dinner a summertime treat.

  • Roast turkey breast
  • Mashed potatoes and gravy
  • Herbed dressing
  • Butter beans cooked with smoked meat
  • Corn on the cob
  • Fried okra
  • Cucumber, onion, & vinegar salad
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Peaches & mangos for dessert

After dinner we will mostly likely start hearing the shrill squeals, loud pops, and booms of fireworks going off all over the area. A bike ride down to the old bridge that went from Mt. Pleasant to Sullivan's Island to view the displays will cap off the evening!

Have a fun, happy & safe 4th of July!


Having turkey for the 4th of July was pure genius, if I do say so myself! We live in a town that allows fireworks and we are inundated with booms, cracks, and bangs till the wee hours of the morning. This was the first year I slept through all of it!!!
