Friday Fill-In - July 4

I'm a day late on this one. Oops!

1. Holidays in the summer are fun to celebrate with BBQ chicken, watermelon, and berries and cream.

2. Pineapple slices and sweet potatoes are my favorite things to grill.

3. My thoughts are always whirling around in my head.

4. Fourth of July picnics is what I'm most looking forward to this weekend!

5. My favorite book so far this summer is The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (still reading).

6. A shower is the best way to begin a day.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to going to a BBQ, tomorrow my plans include meeting up with a new friend in my new town at a really fun coffee shop and Sunday, I want to get some of our artwork up on the wall in our new townhouse!

To all the Americans, Happy 4th of July weekend!

beastmomma - I loved grilled fruit, and I'm working on how to slice a mango so I can grill that too. I eat mangoes a lot, but they always just turn into yummy piles of mush when I try to slice one!

tanabata - I took berries and cream to the 4th of July BBQ....and left just as much at home for ourselves! :)

Mangos are delicious and wonderful grilled. My brother places the mango vertically and then cuts straight lines, so that he has three or four thick slices. He saves the middle part; the thicker outer layers work well on the grill. Hope that helps!

beastmomma - Thank you! I learned once how to do it, and it worked, but then I forgot. But the way your brother does it sounds the same...thank you so much for the memory jog!
