Holiday Food Fest

We love to travel, but prefer to travel when others are not. With that in mind we hung close to the homestead this last long  holiday weekend. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the fourth of July than by cooking fun foods  and photographing the results. Avril kicked off the holiday with her red, white and blueberry scones.

The next day breakfast was bagels with cream cheese, lox, capers and fresh dill from our herb garden.

Time to break out the grill! TJ's Chile-lime chicken burger on homemade focaccia with Tillamook Sharp Cheddar, Sukhi's mango chutney and hamburger dills.

Porterhouse with Rosemary Potatoes
For the grand finale we feasted on Porterhouse Steak and rosemary roasted potatoes.

I am deeply, deeply envious of your ability to bake, grill, and roast. I'm limited to grilling, pan frying and steaming right now. What a great holiday spread you two came up with!

Zoomie- Thank you! The credit for the baking goes completely to my lovely wife. She made the scones and was not happy because they were not showing enough blue. So she attached more fresh berries using the glaze as glue.When your kitchen is done you will be laughing.

Nice grill marks.

Chilebrown- Thanks for noticing. I'm a little obsessive about my grill marks.
