Beach Fries

Happy 4th of July!
I'm staying clear from this scene today. Too crazy!
Heading to Bon and Paulie's for their annual cookout and fireworks soiree. Always fun to be with them and their friends from their large ballroom dancing contingent. Peter, Marchin and Donna will make the scene with us, along with J- and Yelena. Should be interesting. The last time we were there, Rescue had to be called. Not for us though. There was a 55-something 'jumper', who thought it a wise act to jump from a second floor deck to catch a shuttlecock (aka birdie) mid-flight in an intense badminton game. For him, it WAS fueled by 'demon alcohol'. That evening, one of the 'Apostles' almost fell in love with a young EMC gal, while she was checking vital signs. In Peter's world, it was a 'love story'.  
On a side note, the group from school who did all the cooking at my retirement party is doing the grilling. 
Yes, that night, they even had deep fried, french fries!
Not REAL beach fries but close.

Bulletin Bulletin-Bulletin-
*Barbecue pushed back a day until the 5th.
Happy 5th!
Thanks, Arthur!

    1. Well, before he heads way north, he's bringing heavy clouds, some wind, chance of showers. Better wait a day for the sun.

  11. The food will keep until tomorrow night. Fireworks around here also got rescheduled. More time for me to figure out the camera settings to catch the streamers! (Don't forget the designated driver.)

  12. french fries (we call them chips which is I think what you call what we call crisps) are best thick-cut and deep-fried in lard or beef-dripping. Best served with vinegar (forget the salt)
