My family is always at our condo at the beach for the week of the fourth:) my dad grills pork steaks. My cousins, family friends, and grandparents are here too. It's great! We watch fireworks on the beach at night:)

Standing guard over my place with a bucket and a hose since by then it won't have rained for a week and will be way too dry to be setting off bottle rockets and mortars. But the neighbors will anyway.

I am thinking going to NC, strapping Longhorn1 to a picnic table and shooting bottle rockets from his anus.

So basically the same thing I have done for the last 5 yrs.

I am watching the TV show "Untold Stories if the ER" There's some pretty interesting stories there. Which department do you work in?

On the show some guy got up and personal with an opening on Coleman Camp stove. He sort of had to carry the stove in front of him. Two of the attendants actually passed out.

That's the Gulf. If you look at Clearwater on a map, its a little island on the gulf side of Florida.

I will be hosting a pool party on Thursday and I am very excited about it but I have been freaking out over what to serve. Obviously I'm going to do a barbecue but I don't know if I should do drum-sticks or beef kebabs and I also need to decide what

Way side dishes and salads to make. I want to keep everybody happy but I don't want to lose my mind in the process

shellybaxter1234 Peaceful Place
06/30/13 5:01 pm

Even though we do chicken and tri tip (which is a beef roast - I know they don't have it in the whole country by that name) - I don't do the cooking. If I were cooking for a pool party I would do hotdogs and hamburgers with Mac salad and chips/dip

I was thinking of making this South African salad with black beans, hearts of palm, red onion, cilantro, cherry tomatoes (even though I hate raw tomatoes) with lime and olive oil. I make an awesome potato salad with lemon and olive oil instead of

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
06/30/13 5:05 pm

Instead of mayo and then something with avocados. But none of those incorporate any sort of red, white, and blue theme so this is where I get torn

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
06/30/13 5:06 pm

I could always just do themed drinks and desserts and just keep the actual meal part normal, right? I'm probably worrying over nothing because I think I'm just going to make exactly what I just described, and I should just do both chicken and beef

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
06/30/13 5:07 pm

Corn chips and guacamole perhaps? Ooh or I could do some sort of salad with beets, avocados, and goat cheese. Ok I think I have decided on a menu finally!

shellybaxter1234 Peaceful Place
06/30/13 5:09 pm

Honey themed drinks sound great - and you can't go wrong with chicken and beef - like I said - that's what we do. The salad sounds really good and interesting - like something people didn't have last night for dinner - you know???

Niz, I love party food that you can grab a nibble in passing. A favorite simple "toothpick" dessert: pile on a plate a box of frozen mini cream puffs & a jar of drained maraschino cherries. Drizzle some of the juice over it and dark chocolate syrup.

You can add blueberries for the color theme.

I know but I'm not good at making little foods, I figure I'll just set up a buffet type of situation and everybody can eat either outside around the pool, I have plenty of tables, or go inside to the air conditioning.
And that sounds yummy!

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
06/30/13 5:41 pm

That's a good idea for dessert and I can make all of the desserts small enough to incorporate a toothpick probably
