The Best Thing I Ate On The Fourth Of July Was…

O.k., something new here. You tell me. Send me a picture and explain why. Perhaps it was something you don't usually eat on this holiday. Or, something familiar done another way. Or, you tried a new recipe, and it rocked! In any case, let's have some fun with this.
I'm waiting.

Happy 4th Anniversary, Four Eyes!

It's the fourth of July and that means this blog is four years young! There's a wonderful pin on Pinterest that says, "Nobody reads your blog." I saw it the first time and laughed and laughed. Then I looked again and got paranoid…what if nobody reads it? Turns out there's no need to worry. Now, thanks to analytics, I know that 11, 726 people have read it, so there! Yes, yes, a small audience, but an appreciative one. So onward we go; numbers will grow. It is about the photography, after all, and the capture of my most-loved subject, food. So tonight, when I hear the fireworks over the bay, I'll know they're not really about our nation, but  for me! Therefore, here's a quiet lake bouquet, loads of good champagne, and chocolate, always chocolate. I've earned it.

Take plenty of these. 

Mix with lots of this.

And plenty of these.

Add crab, if you're lucky!

And you've got one fabulous frittata for your Fathers Day celebration!

Bon Appetit!
