Barbecue, corn on the cob, watermelon, fried chicken, potato salad, and sparklers: this is connotative of the 4th of July.
We met friends last weekend at a local famous fried chicken joint so that taste had been satisfied. The potato salad and summer fruit was calling to me still.
Saturday we went to the local expensive market -- not a supermarket but a smaller independent grocery and I got a five pound bag of potatoes, a couple of potent onions, and two bone-in very thick pork chops (for $7.30 just for the chops), along with grapes, cherries, oranges, apples, and honey dew.
After CBS Sunday Morning and ABC with George Stephanopoulos, or weekly Sunday TV fare, Hubby boiled the potatoes, pared them, added the onions and turned it all into a nice potato salad. I broiled the pork chops in butter and garlic salt.
We feasted, gorging on the chops and sharing the bones with boys. We were too full to even have the fruit for dessert.
