I can't believe the Fourth of July is already here again. I collect cookbooks and one of them was written by Paula Deen. Of course we have different things available here than she does in the South. Be that as is may, we have decided to do something different for our family get together over the weekend. How about a Low-Country Boil. We thought that sounded like a lot of fun. Sausage, shrimp, potatoes and corn. We will still make homemade ice cream and handheld peach pies. It would not be a summer holiday without the kids making ice cream. It keeps them out of trouble. We have one of the old fashioned hand crank versions of ice cream maker. They all get involved and then get to eat the fruits of their labor. It is a win-win for everyone. Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
