Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. It was a hot day, and lovely, and so much celebrating going on all ‘round. Fourth of July weekend, what marks mid-summer for me, and we celebrated with a cookout and a bunch of brats from a butcher shop where you can find just about any flavor you want. We had tater tot hotdish brats and whiskey peppercorn brats and beer batter cheese curd brats (I didn’t get the blueberry brats, but next time for sure). Oh my. And there were hickory beans and potato salad and corn on the cob, some broccoli salad with cheese and bacon, and for dessert, homemade shortcake with fresh berries and whipped cream. Pretty much what we had last year, and what a time we had together.
