There is so much to celebrate this weekend! Tomorrow (July 1st) is Canada Day and the day that I randomly belt out a verse or two of "O Canada", preferably in public places with my children (a parent's prerogative to embarrass her tweens and teens). Monday is July 4th, full of parades and fireworks displays around here. If that wasn't enough, I'm also rejoicing over the fact that the Weather Channel is telling me that it's only going to be74 degrees here in the Seattle area on July 4th, a far cry from the 95-plus July days that we (never quite) got used to in Utah.
All of that being said, we are going to miss our July 4th tradition of driving up to Park City to enjoy the fireworks with our good friends. The day always started off with a scramble to get to the 8am neighborhood parade, followed by a barbecue at one house or another. It was all topped off with watching the fireworks display while relaxing on camping chairs and blankets in the middle of the golf course with our friends.
This year, we're going to commandeer the poolside barbecues at the townhouse we're renting and cook up some burgers and grilled veggies. When it comes to burgers, we're came for anything from beef and turkey to black bean and salmon.
Fire up the grill and dig into this list of meat and meatless burgers - a little something for everything from some of my favorite healthy eating blogs.
