Holiday Dinner

The Better Half and I enjoyed Beef Tenderloin Steaks (hers medium, mine medium rare) with Potato Salad and BBQ Beans for our Independence Day dinner this afternoon. I grilled the steaks outdoors today and didn’t mind the 103° temperature and a slight warmish breeze as I cooked them to order. I had a patriotic and ice cold bottle of Samuel Adams Summer Ale to help me cope with the desert heat.

TBH made the potato salad yesterday and had it marinating for 24 hours in the fridge. The beans, nothing extraordinary, were from a can, but quite tasty as were all the items seen in the (clickable) image above. The dogs (Scratch ‘n’ Sniff) were the happy and eager beneficiaries when we found that neither of us could eat all of our steak.

The town will be shooting off fireworks down at Sunset Park (5 miles west of us) this evening. TBH and I will watch from the courtyard and should be able to observe some of the higher rockets exploding as we have done for previous holidays.

We wish you a safe and happy Independence Day.
