I've been hungry for food lately—by that I mean that I just want home cooked food…not fast food…not restaurant food—food that requires bowls and sauces and cooking and cutting and mixing and baking/broiling. You know…FOOD. So…since we were going to be just "us" for the 4th as my husband had to work I decided to make some food I'd been hungry for. When my son and I were done planning the menu, we had ribs, sausage, corn salad, broccoli salad, baked beans, squash casserole, and banana pudding. Of course there was enough food for 2 or 3 families of four but we'll have leftovers! YUM! It was ALL SO GOOD. My belly is happy. My refrigerator is happy. My family is happy!
