Independence Day Wrapup

It was simple but very all-American for us. Dinner was this:

and steaks on the BBQ grill from America's Best Steaks. A funny thing about those steaks. They're processed in the building that was Bogue Grade School, my school from kindergarten through 8th grade. I'm glad something is there to take its place. And even though we have our own beef, we buy these steaks because they truly are the best. Take it from someone who lives in the heartland and knows a good steak.

Dessert? Why All-American Strawberry Ice Cream, of course!

All American Strawberry Ice Cream
2 cups heavy whipping cream
4 cups half and half
1/2 cup sugar
lots of cut up strawberries

Mix together and chill. Then prepare in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.

We had our fireworks followed by watching the city's fireworks. What a wonderful day!
