Today is Independence Day.
We do a lot of our celebrating the day before because
there are so many fun things to do.
This year I saw a picture of the American Picnic
& it got me wondering why I
never -in my whole life-
have made fried chicken before.
It's just so American.
So I decide it is time.
As I start...
I'm wondering why there are other settings
than HIGH on my stove.
My husband is wondering why I burn everything.
Bo is wondering why the house is so foggy.
Annie is are wondering what stinks terribly.
I am wondering why my pictures are so foggy,
...and why Roo is begging to go outside.
Kelly is wondering where all the kids have gone.
I'm wondering why we found them all out in the garage
(Annie said he was coughing too badly.)
My neighbors are wondering why we are blowing
smoke out of our house with fans.
(and if our house is on fire.)
I'm wondering why it doesn't look like the magazine pictures.
I'm wondering if I should have actually followed the recipe.
I'm wondering why everyone is picking the
breading off their chicken.
& why Roo keeps dipping his watermelon in western dressing,
but that's a different story.
The kids are all wondering when our house will smell better.
I'm wondering if the people sitting next to us at the fireworks will notice we all smell like burnt grease.
I'm wondering if the dried on flour & water mixture all over my black tank top is that noticeable.
I'm glad it's dark.
I'm wondering why I made fried chicken when
Kentucky Fried Chicken is just down the block.
I'm also wondering how you celebrate!?
Happy 4th of July.
Hope you get to celebrate with family & friends.
And that your house never smells like ours.
