But today's ALL ABOUT the Fourth of July and PICNICS !!
Our question for July:
What’s your favorite picnic food or picnic memory or picnic activity?
VICKI BATMANI am so fortunate to live near a great park where Shakespeare's plays are featured every summer. Shakespeare is meant to be acted out, not read in a classroom. We go with friends and have a nice picnic before the show begins. We bring something small for appetizers like cheese, crackers, fruit and nuts. Sometimes, we stop for sub sandwiches. I've been known to bring a pasta dish or chicken salad. Just depends on what moves us. And there is always a fun dessert--cookies, turnovers, cupcakes. All is accompanied by a great wine or beer. Just depends. Nothing fancy, just a nice simple meal with friends. The show is a wonderful bonus.
My friend brings Almond Tea. Poured over ice, it is incredibly refreshing. I have at least four glasses. If you are interested in the recipe, go to my blog for July 2: http://vickibatman.blogspot.com
Everyone loves a Picnic!
I certainly do!
Yum and fun...Roasting hot dogs. Watermelon. And smores!! Gotta love smores. Here's a photo from back in the dark ages of me with two of my little brothers roasting something over a fire. Aren't they cute? My baby brothers, I mean, not the sizzling hot dogs.
It's great being part of the Get Lost in a Story crew. These are a great group of authors. I'm happy to be here. Waving hello!!!
LIZBETH SELVIGI come from a long line of Fourth of July picnickers! My family still gets together every Independence Day at a picnic grounds, a park, or someone's backyard around the grill to eat, play games (good Scandinavians playing bocce ball anyone?)
and eat. The best part of July 4th picnics is the company--family all together. The next best thing, however, is going to fireworks after the pigging out is done.
Wherever you're picnicking and celebrating this year--I wish you a wonderful, joyous Fourth of July!
There is so much to love about July 4th! When I was really little, my father and I would sit and watch fireworks. From where we were, we could see fireworks from three different cities. It was spectacular! Today I'm off to celebrate the holiday with a couple of my brothers and some friends. Have a great holiday and stay safe!
My most memorable Fourth of July picnics have been eating on a houseboat while watching fireworks in the canyon bay of Lake Powell.
and fresh strawberry pie.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
Yesterday, we made a fruit flag (you can see the picture on my facebook page) and dipped these strawberries for a Red, White & Berry fruit.
We also saw an amazing fireworks show in our small home town. We had front row seats, loud, and brilliant.
Happy Independence Day!
