Independance Day seems to bring families together for a family get together of grilling, lounging, water sports, laughter, and of course, fireworks.
Our family is together on this great day and we have put together some delicous, yet simple, foods to get us through the day.
As the price of all food continues to go up it is sometimes hard to remember that as Americans we have some of the most affordable food in the world.
Americans spend just 10% of their income on food, as compared to 18-25% around the world. (U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization)
I will spend another day talking about what causes the price of food to be driven up, but for today here is an idea of what a summer cookout would cost, based on an informal survey from Indiana Farm Bureau (seems fitting as I am visiting my family in Indiana this week!).
Have a great 4th everyone!
