The best thing about this year’s 4th of July is thanks to our good friend Christopher Clavius, we have a three day weekend. *Sidebar note: Thanks to yet another Facebook posting gimmick, I now know (and you probably do too :)) that this year’s month of July has 5 Fridays 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays—something that only happens once every 823 years. Boo-yah for weekends!
We’re heading to the mountains for our annual 4th of July stay-cation celebration at our wonderfully generous friends Barr & Sherrie’s family cabin. Generous, yes, because there will be 14 of us this year.
There will be lots of cooking (Gorgonzola Cheese Burgers with Adobo Ketchup–recipe below–will be making their annual appearance) going on nature walks, throwing rocks in the river and searching for stars.
To plan and prep, here’s my list of some “bang-ing” links (ah, snap!) for the amazing week(end) ahead.
I’ve downloaded this celestial app to help us find our way
I’m plotting my menu thanks to Lori’s AMAZEBALLS round-up of 100 red, white and blue recipes
I’ll be madly assembling goodie bags and finalizing details for our intimate event on Wednesday
And then readying the guest room to host our giveaway winner
Drooling over fab foodie finds
Keeping the brews cold in a retro find
Meeting, tweeting and learning at this mountain top conference
Picking up a new pair thanks to the new dog’s insatiable chewing desires
And finally, joining Shauna, Irvin, Garrett, Justin, Ashley and 1000 others to party with pie
Happy sparklers everyone!

Pelaez” and their wild and crazy exploits of Kutchie’s Key West and The

Hello! I just wanted to inform you that your delicious recipe has been featured here:
these burgers look delicious! i love gorgonzola. i do burgers with brie a lot, and it’s one of my favorite summer dishes. love the dog, too! :)
Any stinky cheese works well, especially if its a creamy version so melt-factor is optimum.
I eh would like to eat your cream.
