Pink and red with a little green thrown in that is...
We pass this barn on our way to go shopping in North Conway. This week Jack parked the car and I took a few pictures. The barn proudly displays the American flag. Last summer a sunflower grew against the barn making a lovely vignette.
I am hoping for a family picnic this weekend. Growing up in New Jersey, the 4th was a big deal. We would either be at Uncle George's in Green Village or Gram Potter's in Sussex. Wherever the setting, the food was wonderful.
Often if Uncle George had come back from a fishing trip, there would be fish and he was the master of cooking them on the grill. He often came to Maine to fish and the background in this picture is much like the view from the porch of the cabin.
My sister and I were perfect little angels at these outings.
If my family does get here for a cookout, I will make Deviled Eggs and Potato Salad. There will be Baked Beans and various meats on the grill. The green part will be the pickles I have made courtesy of Lynn at Happier Than a Pig in Mud. She shared two recipes and I made them both.
I am also joining Beverly for Pink Saturday. Please be sure to stop by and say hi.
I wish you all a safe and happy 4th.
