For Monday, July 4th, 2011
The fourth of July is the birthday of our nation. Today, we celebrate and enjoy the freedom that comes with the event that made this day so special.
Thomas Jefferson, is the author of the Declaration of Independence. He led a committee that crafted the declaration between June 11-28, 1776. Jefferson and other discontented representatives from the thirteen colonies, voted and approved it on July 4, 1776. The document declared freedom for the 13 colonies from British rule. It currently resides in the Exhibition Hall of the National Archive in Washington, D.C.
1 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 dash hot pepper sauce
Mix catsup, honey, lemon juice and hot pepper sauce. Brush on both sides of ribs. Grill or broil 6" from heat until ribs are hot, 8 to 10 minutes per side. Brush frequently with sauce.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
From every mountain side
Let Freedom ring.
Samuel F. Smith, "America"
