I am declaring Independence Day, ” the national day of BBQ”!!  So, since we are all in the mood for something grilled and yummy I thought it would be cool to set the mood by creating a perfect July 4th. BBQ, including steaks cut in the shape of America. Pretty fun and patriotic, too boot. I love to gather up some friends, family and neighbors to enjoy this special holiday that’s smack dab in the middle of summer. Let’s take it all in and enjoy of daily freedom’s. Happy 4th., eat, drink and sparkler.


Some lovely Americana place settings for a more formal event

Apparently Texans are especially enthusiastic about Independence Day – I’ll find out since I’m spending it there this year!

If you don’t like pie, a festive cake like this is equally enticing!

Here we are, the middle of summer, this is such a fun holiday.
