Happy July 4th…or is it the 2nd? 1

July 4th at the fair

The Last Day of the San Diego Fair 2016

 

Well…apparently after re-reading the real history of America’s declaration of independence, I discovered that the date that appears on the Declaration of Independence but was not actually the day Congress voted for independence which was actually on July 2nd. 240 years ago John Adams, the founding father who later became our second john adamsPresident, wanted to celebrate it on the 2nd with “Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

He would be proud to know that this is exactly what Americans do despite the challenges that lie ahead for them to keep their independence of spirit, enthusiasm and optimism.

And what about really getting into the mood? People magazine offered a video cooking lesson for a “Funfetti” cake from Pastry Chef Jenny McCoy who works for America’s own Institute of Culinary Education in the school of Pastry & Baking Arts which is one of the most important culinary institutes in the world.
