Hail to the Fourth!

Fourth of July! I can just taste the roasted corn, dripping in fresh cream butter, crusty with sea salt, spicy with pepper! And all of the other exciting flavors, sights, and sounds of our nations independance. Images of flags waving and Aaron Copeland's Fan Fare for the Common Man conjures up images of a virgin America in its infancy. Man touching on her shores for the first time. Pioneers braving the wild west in search of dreams. Explorers and early settlers scaling the mighty mountains in search of new lands! Oh it is all so wonderful. Happy 4th of July everyone!
