We don't have a family gathering on the 4th of July. My parents are elderly and not very mobile and my son works. So it is basically another day for us. It would be nice to have a family gathering, but you need to have a family to do that and mine is small! I try to make something special for dinner, though.
We had a sirloin tri tip roast that I grilled, with sauce provencal, sauteed baby bellas and a romaine salad.
Mark loves sweet corn. I don't.
I made a cake! I don't bake very often, so this was a big deal. White cake with chocolate frosting. A favorite of mine.
