i'd gladly pay you tuesday for a burger today.. 4th of july recipe round up!!
for the past several years we have had a 4th of july party.. one year shell was in san diego at camp pete and drove down friday picked her up got up early saturday (like 4:00 a.m. early) and drove home and had a party that afternoon.. but for some reason this year everyone looked around and said what we are doing for the fourth and no one could come up with a good idea.. where we live, boulder city, has damboree days.. they have a parade and huge firework show at night.. we have always grilled burgers or steaks in our backyard then packed everything up and headed to the park behind our house and watched the fireworks.. to be honest i have no idea whatsoever what we will be doing this year, but i am sure whatever we end up doing will be fun because we will be with family and friends.. definitely want to go to the lake.. then maybe dinner at one of the local places in boulder (hope they are open i better check on that) then maybe head down the veterans park where the big party is every year.. maybe *shoulder shrug* not sure.. i can tell you at some point a burger will be in my tummy in the next few days.. i love burgers.. i love them in the summer.. in the winter.. from a fast food restaurant or 5 star gourmet restaurant.. i love them.. so to give you some ideas i have scoured the web and found some awesome burgers to try for your fourth!! and what ever you end up doing i hope you have a safe and wonderful fourth of july with your family and friends..
my little space on the net for recipes and thoughts... i should start off by saying I am not a blogger, this is, shall we say, a journal of sorts for my recipes and random thoughts now and again, to be shared with family and friends. my cooking philosophy is simple, if the recipe has too many ingredients I won't cook it, too many pots and pans required I won't do it, sandwiches DO NOT constitute dinner. I cook simple, quick and easy meals.
I have had a love for cooking since I was young.. well ok at first it wasn't a love it was my "chore." but love came later.. When I turned 16 my Mother started me reading recipes on Sunday and then picking 2 or 3 from her cook books or magazines and then preparing a grocery list from the recipe (which today I am lost if I don't have my detailed list for my trip to the store) from my list I would then clip coupons and I would head off to the grocery store.. As an incintive (I always need incintives and money works wonders *smile*) I was allowed to keep any money I saved from the coupons and she would then pay me per meal I made. I had to cook at leaast 2 a week but if wanted more money I would cook more, the prices ranged from $5.00 for simple meals such as tacos and refried beans (no canned in my house) or $15.00 for something like Chicken Cacciatore (because it takes so much longer but is so much worth it). So when I got married and got a house of my own I was able to conquer the grocery store and cooking delicious meals. um thanks Mom?
