For me, Memorial day marks the beginning of summer and is celebrated with the grill. Come 4th of July, I take a break from the hot coals and hit the coast. My mom lives by the beach in Massachusetts & my brothers and I try to descend on “Glousta” at least once during the summer with our families. Days are spent in the sun (and ocean!) and the food comes right from the sea: lobsters, clams- you name it, we eat it. Leftovers are twice as sweet with lobster rolls and 4th of July is always finished out with pie and watching some fireworks.
Happy Fourth of July!
