Happy Independence Day!

To my fellow Americans, and anyone else who believes in freedom, equality and really, REALLY good barbecue…

Happy Independence Day!

I wasn’t going to post today, but Uncle Jesse had something to tell you:

Any plans for today? How mad are you that we have to go back to work tomorrow (if you don’t, listen, don’t be a snot-bucket and rub it in)?

  1. I love a good Uncle Jesse reference! Happy 4th!

  2. Happy 4th to you as well.

    Tim

  3. My plans are to eat my face off in the form of really good barbecue. Happy 4th, Uncle Jesse!

  4. My goal today is to use the word “capisce” as often as possible, don’t know why, but it makes me giggle. Have a happy day!

  5. SUPER pissed that it lands in the middle of the week. So dumb. Work two, one day to breathe, work two more. Eff that, man.

    That being said, I’m heading to the beach. It’s going to be 100 today, so might as well enjoy it. Happy 4th, sweetie!

  6. My goal is to use the words “red”, “white” and/or “blue” in every sentence I speak or write today. Red goal met!

    • In case you need any phrases in your back pocket (and now don’t go using any blue language):
      “blue in the face”
      “red-faced test”
      “feeling blue”
      “white as the driven snow”

  7. Happy “any excuse to celebrate is a good one” day :-)

  8. I’m so happy to be celebrating by enjoying 70 degree temps, seeing the blue Pacific ocean for the first time, watch the white puffy clouds drift by, and trying not to be beet-red by the end of the day. A very mellow yellow day. Hope to take in a tour of the purple grapes turning to wine. Silly, brown Zany’s keeping me company. Orange cha just green with envy? oh. okay. Fade to black with my Crayola theme…Should’ve stopped after the red, white, and blue, huh?

  9. Have a goodun! I wish I were in the U.S. as nowt happens here….. (well I suppose for obvious reasons) ;-) xx

  10. Happy 4th! I’d raise a glass in toast to you, but I have to go to work today. Also, I live in Canada. We already had our celebrations this weekend. :)

    • Happy belated Canada Day, Dana! I trust you celebrated in full force. Canadian-bacon-wrapped hot dogs??

      • Haha– maybe some Canadians celebrated with the Canuck Cardiac Roll, but alas– this Almost Vegan did not. I did look pretty cute in my red and white outfit, though. ;)

        • That I believe! And I suppose I’m willing to overlook the lack of bacon in your life ;)

          (Don’t tell the others – I was a vegeterian for almost 6 years, and I LOVE making vegan dishes. One of them even has…gasp…TOFU.)

  11. Happy 4th! As a Canadian i spend all of my celebrating for the 1st which is Canada Day but I’ve always wanted to be in the states for the 4th of the JULY. André is in Hawaii today so I’ll celebrate vicariously through him.
    That Uncle Jesse sure has his priority straight and although I no longer eat hotdogs I do believe in his message.

    • Thanks, Erin! I was so excited to see the comments come in from you yesterday during the celebration! :) Man, Hawaii sounds like the place to be!

      I will let you know if I discover a good veggie hot dog. Hmm. MorningStar corn dogs are actually pretty awesome.

  12. I never realized Uncle Jesse was Italian. Huh. Hope you are having a fab holiday and imbibing in many cool and refreshing drinks by the pool. I imbibed, I pooled, and now I have returned to the sanctity of my A/Ced abode to relax. Happy Day!!

    • LOL! Misty, I was thinking that, too, when I wrote this. The ‘real’ Uncle Jesse from Full House was actually Greek (they made kind of a big moussaka out of it), so I’m not sure where they got the whole capisce thing from.

      I’m glad you had a good 4th! Ours was mostly good…except for the part I’ll reveal in tomorrow’s post (OOOOOH)…

  13. Happy 4th. Just found your blog and love it!

  14. snot-bucket???
    and tell Uncle Jesse we did dogs on the grill for the 4th!!!

    • LOL! I’m glad you picked up on that, Coop! I was actually trying to think of the insult Stephanie and DJ used to use on Full House. It was something like that… “Nerd bomber” was always a good one. I spring that one sometimes.

  15. hiii!!!!! Happy Belated 4th of July my fun loving Americano! I miss, miss you and your super funniness ( yes, yes,,,this is a word). I have no internet right now so I have to trudge my ass to the library and can you believe the audacity of them for only allowing moi 1 hour a day on a computer,,,it’s a travesty I say.
    On a note you will be happy to know,,I am now a total Jersey fan now, because of no internet I am forced to watch the speciality channels on t.v and now am addicted to the Cake Boss family, Snooki and JWOW, and all the other kooky Jersey shows!!

    • Hiya Nikki! I’m sorry you’re without the interwebz! Tell them to tack on an extra hour to your allowance on my behalf, or I’ll sic Uncle Jesse on them.

      Huzzah! Another Jersey fan! You should try our pork roll. (Actually, it’s not that different from Canadian bacon, come to think of it.)

      The sad thing is I know people related to Snooki AND the Cake Boss. And this is the most densely populated state in the U.S. How can this be??
