Yum, We Love the Fourth of July!

July 4, 2014

I am hunched over in the back corner of Peet’s Coffee here in Berkeley, sipping an almond milk cappuccino (whaaaat?) and I am overwhelmed with emotion. Perhaps I am excited about the holiday weekend – a chance to escape with my wife and Grizzly up to the tranquility of the Sierras. Or maybe it’s simply the gin martini I had for lunch. Probably both. Regardless, it’s sure to be a fabulous Fourth of July – full of food, drinks and family.

Speaking of the Fourth, what’s more American than apple pie? Why, berry pie of course!! I haven’t been able to take my eyes off Linda’s dreamy pie picnic all week.

  • There’s no doubt, Stephanie takes the prize for my favorite 4th of July themed recipe.
  • I like cookies, and I like thumbs, therefore . . .
  • I’d trade my almond milk cappuccino for one of these any day of the week!
  • My birthday already passed, but this would have been nice.
  • Forget the Sierras. Maybe I’ll give Grizzly a bath this weekend and head up to wine country.
  • Speaking of dogs . . . this would make the World Cup so much more exciting.
  • Don’t worry . . . no wait, WORRY!

Have a happy (and safe) Fourth!!
