Nothing says the United States of America better than Red, White & Blue
– except maybe for hot dogs on the grill, apple pie and brownies, baseball and a game of horseshoes . . . . and of course, 4th of July fireworks.
Some of my fondest memories include going to Uncle John’s – where the BBQ was always burning – and dashing into the pool, listening to the adults banter about the family volleyball game, the constant flow of grape soda, root beer and beer (…when I was older of course ;-))
– then the food was always the same:
Kielbasi on the grill with hot dogs, hamburgers and the occasional rib or piece of chicken,
Aunt Kay’s macaroni salad. And. If you were lucky you got a spoonful some shrimp in it.
my Mom’s all American potato salad
Grandmom’s German potato salad recipe was always present, even if Grandmom wasn’t
deviled eggs – but you had to be early to get those
and then watermelon.
Another image that always conjures up the States – at least for many European movie goers is the Iconic Kiss in the rain and on that though I wanted to share this blog with you, just a little bit of fun!
