Av and I have planned an Independence Day get-together for weeks now, and we’re going to try to make it the best one ever. Av will be in charge of the grill, which is a good thing because everything he ever does always turns out perfectly. I’ll be in charge of the cold food, like potato salad and macaroni salad, and a couple of pies for dessert – those kind of things are my favorite!
I’ve been looking for some crafty decorating ideas, and there are a lot of nices ones at MarthaStewart.com – she had one idea on her older Martha Stewart Living show (I have it Tivoed but can’t find it on her site) for these neat ribbons that were glued to skewers, where the ribbons had been cut to resemble flags. I may be going to the fabric shop later today, so I’ll post the how-to on those soon.
