Around the Internet Kitchen: Independence!
Congratulations America for making it yet another year!
On your birthday this year, I will definitely be:
2) Drinking beers
3) Blogging (Dork alert!)
4) Tailgating for a baseball game
5) Watching soccer (maybe not so American)
Things I will definitely not be doing:
1) Going anywhere near a place of tourism in DC.
2) Taking the Metro anywhere. For any reason.
3) Going to a baseball game. (Not in the mood to brave heat and crowds this year.)
The Write-in Poll
In honor of having, you know, independence, I’m not posting a poll this week. Instead I’m giving you all free reign. Write a comment with a dish you’d like me to try out and I’ll pick one at random from the comments to make!
Should be fun! Go easy on me!
And some good links for the 4th of July Weekend!
Taco Dip – If you’re going to a BBQ this weekend and need something quick and simple to bring, this taco dip looks really good. Impress your friends and lovers with your dip-making abilities. (@ Brown Eyed Baker)
Red, White, and Blue Sandwiches – Cheesecake? Check. Ice cream? Check. Sandwich? Check. These would be very good for a weekend of sweltering heat. Jenna also discovered the problem I recently discovered as well: There really is no such thing as blue food. (@ Modern Domestic)
101 Fast Recipes for Grilling – If you’re at all at a loss as to what to cook this weekend on the grill, look here. Meat lover, fish lover, vegetarian… Bittman covers all the bases. There are so many good ideas in this article that it could easily keep a griller busy for the rest of summer. (@ NY Times) (PS. Pretty sure it’s a fake grill in the photo. I’ve never seen coals like that!)
Have a great weekend everyone and leave a comment if you have a dish you want me to try out!
