Independence Day... CELEBRATION

'In God is our trust.'
And the star-spangled banner
in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free
and the home of the brave!
~Francis Scott Key

SWEET greetings, from the farm...
an 'Independence' greeting at that!

As the 4th rolls around...
we all are anticipating the gathering of
family & friends, whether it's YOU
being the hostess or YOU'RE
contributing to the feast at
someone else's home! 
And along with this week
up til the celebration... there are the
decisions & preparation
of WHAT to serve/offer OR bring
for family & friends to feast on!

Well, here today... I'm offering...
one of my TRIED & TRUE, side dishes!
One that is all-too-well known, especially
throughout the grilling season!
BUT, there are several ingredients in
which I have taken upon myself to add
& they are SURE to make a difference!
SO, let's begin... shall we...

'Spicy Grilled Cabbage'

Prepare cabbage, slice into 8 wedge pieces, 
placing on a double layer of foil.  Cut one, large
'Vidalia' onion into wedges, scattering about.
Remove seed & chop several
'Corno Di Toro Giallo'  peppers & add.
Add FRESH garlic, to YOUR taste ~
Slather with REAL butter & give the
ingredients a drizzle of olive oil, with
a drop of hot sauce, again, YOUR taste!
 Sprinkle with mineral salt, crushed, black pepper
& paprika.  And DON'T let barbecue sauce 
be restricted with only meat... CABBAGE
is delish smothered in a specialty sauce
as well!

Cover & seal foil... throw on the grill 
before hand, to allow for complete tenderness... 
unless you parboil the cabbage, first!
Time will vary upon grills & temp... 

ENJOY, each & every bite...
Being here in the 'Bluegrass State',
as well as MANY other states... outdoor
festivities will be high on the agenda!
Cook-Outs, Barbecue's, Porch Parties...
will be hopping to the tune of music,
laughter & popping firework!

SO let's NOT 
forget about the center of those tables,
this weekend!  Adding FRESH-CUT flowers 
TRULY does something for the soul!

Here at 'Beehind Thyme Farm & Garden'...
we will be adding SUNFLOWERS to 
mason jars, wrapped in burlap with flags
tucked in each one... NOW that's sure
to spread some CHEER!

Here's to... 
Hoping EACH of YOU a happy & safe...
Independence Day!
