Thankful Thursday late, Happy 4th early, and two, count 'em, two giveaways!

I'm thankful for our wild fruits! Remember the wild blackberries and the black raspberries the kids picked? Here they are served in a simple syrup over Alden's Organic Vanilla Ice Cream:I'm also thankful for our regular veggies. Nothing says summer more than fried squash (until the watermelons come on anyway). These are crook neck squash; we'll have the regular summer squash later in the month. Pre-cooked:Cooked:I'd like to wish all my American friends a very happy Fourth of July! For fun, sing the Star Spangled Banner at the top of your lungs in a public place. I just might do that. I love the U.S. national anthem much more than the Canadian national anthem. :)

And to celebrate the momentous occasion of the birth of the country, you might want to enter some cool giveaways:

The first is from Professional SAHM - where you can win a Joy Carpet.

The second giveaway is from Mudpies and Mary Janes where you can win a Wii Sports Active.

What fun plans do you have for the holiday weekend, or regular weekend if you're not in the U.S.?
