The Fourth Day of the Seventh Month

Happy Fourth of July!

I am willing to bet you quite a bit of money (or maybe just a piece of cake) that you ate something involving strawberries and blueberries today.
If you were like me, you made an angel food cake.* You might have even covered the angel food cake in a mixture of whipped cream and marshmallow fluff before adding some patriotic berries.

* a week in advance so you could pre-write and schedule this post since you’d be out of town
Even if the blueberries do look more black than blue in this picture.

Forgive them.
It’s the American thing to do.*

*The Smart Kitchen thing to do on this day is listen to Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers “Fourth of July” 5,000 times but I’ll let you decide if you want to participate in that or not.

4th of July desserts are my favorite – in fact any dessert that is based on a holiday gets me all giddy inside. Perhaps its the fact that I feel holiday desserts have no calories. Same with all holiday food. It's true, right?

Totally did the berry thing today minus the angel food cake though. How I wish I did have the angel food cake part after reading your post!
