The original title was going to be "Happy 236th Birthday," but after arguing with my sister over the exact date of Independence Day, which then led to a pointless, drawn out debate about the significance of dates & history, I realized it was a stupid title...ANYWAY!
This Fourth of July was a family affair, and switching from our usual carnivorous feast, we went pescetarian. As a bona fide food-shopaholic, I volunteered to get all the goods, and brought back home a variety of fresh vegetables from the Farmer's Market, wild clams, squid & mackerel from the Korean market, and wild shrimp & calamari from Whole Foods. Seeing everyone's happy face as they mmm'ed and ahhh'ed at the food, made all that time spent prepping and skewering worthwhile. How did you spend your Independence Day?
