Here in the States we’re celebrating the super-weird Wednesday 4th of July next week — hooray Independence Day! Usually the 4th aligns itself with a particular week, but this year it’s smack-dab in the middle. Some people are taking the first half of the week off and beginning their 4th of July weekend right about now; others are using the 4th as a starting point and taking the second half of next week off. As for me, I’ll be working almost all week, enjoying the air conditioning and planning for next year while most of the office is away. Ahhhh, peace and quiet at the Catersource office!
In the meantime I’d love to have a toast, either with chilled-out champagne sorbet (courtesy of Footers in Denver — yum!) or with deliciously fancy floral champagne (courtesy of Good Gracious! in L.A.). Or I could just head out to a pig roast, like the one served this week by Calihan Catering in Chicago. Or I could just grab a frosty beer from this tremendously cool DIY drink cooler from Food for Thought in Chicago.
