At Home: July 4th Holiday 2017

July 6, 2017

On Monday, Jen came out to the house by herself because unlike her, Louis did not have the day off. Lunch was Hebrew National franks with the usual accompaniments — Batampte deli mustard and sour kraut — along with Busch’s vegetarian baked beans. I didn’t take any photos.

Jen spent part of the afternoon sketching.

(More about her art work in a future post.)

Dinner started with Chilled Strawberry-Watermelon Soup I’d made earlier in the day.

For the main course, Beer Can Chicken. (The previous post, Beer Can Chicken Without the Can, is here.) This time, instead of beer, I filled the canister with white wine.

The next day — the 4th — lunch for Michael and me started with homemade Yellow Squash Soup.

We then had some of the leftover chicken served at room temperature. To go with it, I made Macaroni Salad.

The weather during the entire holiday was perfect for dining al fresco and relaxing on the patio.
