Official Firecracker Feast
Posted July 3, 2007
What is the classic Carolina menu for the 4th of July? What food items are just absolutely necessary to make your holiday meal complete?
I would love to hear from you on this. We’ll tally the results and come up with the Official Firecracker Feast .
Growing up my family almost always picnicked on the Blue Ridge Parkway or by some chilly mountain swimming stream. I still savor those soggy pimento cheese sandwiches, potato salad and ice tea. Dessert consisted of caramel or chocolate cake or brownies.
As a parent myself I have let those traditions slip away. Tomorrow I will probably grill hotdogs and hamburgers . However, if I can find some pimento cheese made with extra sharp cheddar I might make a sandwich or two. Maybe we'll have blackberry cobbler for dessert with brown sugar sauce.
What about you?
