Going Fourth (Hungry)

We've reached the point in the week where I share an obligatory post about the next holiday.

We both knew it was coming.

This year, we're celebrating the fourth in stages over a series of days and alongside lots of other events. And lucky you, you get to hear about all of them!

(This is where you feign enthusiasm).

For kicks, though, I thought I would throw you a bone.

I've included a recipe (or two) with each day to give you an idea about the type of food we will eat, or that I wish we will eat.* That way, this blog is a resource for tasty treats instead of my own personal calendar.

Aww, you're welcome.

Here's the breakdown:

Thursday (today): We have dinner plans with some family friends we met up with when we traveled to Chicago a couple years back before Stephen headed to Iraq. (Wow, that's a long sentence. Maybe I'll shorten it, maybe not.) So, we might eat this, or, maybe they will bring this!

Friday: Get name changed with the SSA. (Again, this is where you feign enthusiasm--because I had to). Then, I will finally see some actual human friends that I haven't seen since the wedding (coming up on nine weeks ago).

Lame, Jen. Lame. I plan on having this to recover from my failure.

Saturday: Celebrate Heather's return to the U.S. of A. at her graduation/birthday/no-more-being-in-New-Zealand party. Seriously, just throw the fourth in with it. That way, we can celebrate you being back in America by eating this.

Sunday: Hang out with family and friends, and go to the Grizzlies game (with everyone else in Fresno). And, of course, eat these.

Monday: Recouperate.

What fun things are you up to for Independence Day?

*Because, heck, why not?


  1. Sounds like you will be among everyother person in Fresno who is planning to do and eat the same things. Maybe we should all go to Dinuba.

  2. Ha! Nice, except I think that the entire city of Dinuba can fit into the Grizzlies Stadium. Twice.
