Movin' Slowly Near Philadelphia
I've been living in my kitchen -- a little over a week ago I got on a baking jag of epic proportions: banana/coconut bread with lime glaze, blueberry muffins, coconut custard pie, puppy biscuits. chocolate chip cookies, more blueberry muffins, English muffin bread, and a chocolate cake. Beyond baking, yesterday I made a lemony orzo salad and today a huge bowl of potato salad. Don't know what else might strike my fancy.
Fourth of July is a major event Near Philadelphia. I wrote about it here and here. Our good friend Bill, the driving force of the local Patriotic Association is in hospital this year, so the rest of us have to be sure to make the holiday happen. It's the least we can do for him. Perhaps that's why I've been the crazed cook.
Tom, Anastasia, Nate and Aberdeen (TANA) arrived yesterday and are staying with us. Amy, Eli and Andrew are driving up today and staying with her parents. Sherry and her kids will be joining us tomorrow evening. and All of the aforementioned plus many more will be here on Wednesday.
So if you don't hear from me for a while, it's 'cuz we're celebrating. Celebrating freedom and independence. Celebrating family and friends. And celebrating Grandbaby Number Six, recently announced, who will be the finest Christmas gift ever!
