Celebrate the Fourth with a wiener flag!
I should have dyed my wieners red to replicate the original dish.
Served in a fireworks kinda looking starburst dish.
This is the first Fourth of July dish I have ever made. We don't do much for the holiday, not because we are communists, or anything like that. The holiday has some unfortunate factors. The first and foremost is the timing. I spend 6 months of the year from Sept through the beginning of April celebrating and making for many birthdays and holidays, When the second week of April hits, I am done...d-o-n-e...done. I am not in the mood for the next 6 months to do any party planning or acknowledge holidays that have the nerve to ask something of me. Another timing aspect that is unfortunate is the holiday is in the summer. In my corner of the world the daily temps hoover around 300 degrees with a steam sauna producing rain, which takes place a couple of times a day. No, the rain doesn't reduce the heat, it only makes the air too thick to breathe. And lastly, I don't do much for the Fourth because I can't stand the color navy blue. I don't even allow blue ink pens into my house.
I know. I should be asking what I can do for my country, not complaining about colors and summer heat. But hey, we Americans are known for being whiny little ninnies, so I guess I am celebrating in the proper fashion.
