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!!!
