I just found your blog and I'm so excited!! I have always wanted to live in an old farmhouse, but since that isn't happening, I'm making my house (inside) to look and feel like one.

Happy 4th of July to you and yours! and I'm looking forward to reading your prior posts.

Your feast looks divine.

I just love your site. Your home is just beautiful. We also live in a renovated farmhouse that was built around 1900. I adore old homes.

LOVE smoked brisket....I have never made it though and told my hubs that I wanted a smoker so that I could try. I have to go to Famous Dave's restaraunt to get it here for now....Can I trade you my crab boil for a brisket feast! I loved your educational patriotic post too. Your menu sounds delicious,still wishin you were my neighbor! Take care now!
