Family Fourth of July Cookblogging

Our grandson Pesce stayed with us during the last part of June, joined on the 2nd of July by his parents, Baguette and Truffle, and his Aunt Escargot, our daughter. Escargot’s boyfriend Manzo Bistecca rolled in on the 3rd, and we were all together … save for our granddaughter Biscotto, who was stuck in Seattle … for the 4th of July.

Sadly, the Glorious Fourth has come and gone and Ditalini are alone again, but while the gang was here, such cooking!

Most of the recipes are already up here at Crouton’s Kitchen.

The deMenthe pets are always happy when company comes, because they inevitably talk guests into giving them treats.

Well, you know what they say … the family who cooks together eats together. Or something like that!
