As a small kid who eagerly awaited all the major holidays I distinctly remember posing the following - now embarrassing yet then oh so innocent - question to my father: "Dad, when is the 4th of July?" Why the anticipation of such holidays? Food! The 4th of Julyhas always been a wonderfully food centric holiday. I fondly remember the burgers, potato salad, deviled eggs, baked beans, sweet corn and apricot crisp all washed down with copious amount of Shasta soda.
