Submarine Sandwiches- that is what we did EVERY year on the 4th of july. Other things included a parade in Caldwell, fireworks at the Hils' house in Efland or at the courthouse in carrboro- and one year there was a parade in Graham maybe?
I personally LOVE fireworks but we haven't seen them (on the 4th) in a couple of years. Last year we were at a buffet dinner in OC while the fireworks show was going on (the place was empty!) and this year we had a wonderful afternoon at our old house with the neighbors- Charlie loved the doggies!
So I made a platter of subs and we enjoyed the weather & company. Happy 4th of July! One year we'll make it to DC- that will be fun!
