Family 4th of July Event

Fireworks - thedamian                                                         thedamian – Flickr.com

I am really looking forward to this 4th of July’s Barbecue.  We have always had family over for New Years Eve and New Years Day – 23 years and running!  We’ve added a few more holidays since moving to Connecticut – Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve ~ and 4th of July! 

 Happy 4th of July - The Wandering Angel                                                     The Wandering Angel – Flickr.com

Here in Connecticut, Fireworks are allowed – of course the legal ones that can be purchased in the local Super Markets and stores, which tend to be colorful and make more of POP-POP sound than the KABOOM ones seen at Fireworkshows.  Non the less, the kids ~ and adults ~ love it!  We wait until dark and have a BLAST! and, during that entire time – no pesty mosquitoes or bats flying over us!

Please remember to BE SAFE – Here are some Fireworks Safety Tips from Examiner.com

Food Network Grilling Recipes

grilled-burger-robert-s-donovan-booleansplit                                     Robert S. Donovan (booleansplit) – Flickr.com

 It is a beautiful day here in Brewster, NY at my office – Century 21 V.J.F. Realty.   I live just 15 minutes away in New Fairfield, CT and can’t wait to get home and barbecue!

The Food Network has a ton of recipes on line.  There are also tips to eating healthier, quick and easy recipes, videos and a “My Recipe Box” to keep all your favorites.

A few that I’m choosing from are:

So many to choose from!  Many of my buyers, when looking at potential homes, make sure the deck or patio have enough room to fit a grill and table with chairs. 

 Happy and Safe Grilling to all!

Thanks to GOOGLE IMAGERY
