A good July 4th: We stocked up on food before the stores closed. We BBQ’d corn in the husks. We made veggie shish kebabs and ate Tofu Pups and Field Roast on buns {well, everybody else ate Tofu Pups, which I can’t stand, and a couple of us ate Field Roast, which everybody loves. No offense against Tofu Pups—I hate all soy based hot dogs brand equally}. We drank root beer {we very rarely have soda at the house} and ate non dairy ice cream. We tended to Ruby, our miserable greyhound who *hates!  thunderstorms and fireworks. We watched the local fireworks from our front yard, which were underwhelming this year, to say the least. And I managed to read most of You Lost Me There.

shish kebab Look up shish kebab at Dictionary.com1914, from Armenian shish kabab, from Turk. siskebap, from sis “skewer” + kebap “roast meat.”

{So I guess veggie shish kebab means vegetables plus meat on a stick, which doesn’t make much sense, but whatever.}
