Happy Fourth, Friends.

So yes. I’m Australian.

Yes, this might be cultural appropriation. But having grown up on a constant diet of American TV, movies and songs, I guess I feel a small amount of ownership over all awesome American holidays. And also: I love food. And celebrating.

So tonight I attempted my first Independence Day dinner.

Fried chicken ✔️
Slaw ✔️
Crispy Taters ✔️
Grilled Corn ✔️
Creamy sauce ✔️
American Beer ✔️

Heck, I even downloaded a kickass Americana playlist from iTunes that boasted Dolly Parton and Tim McGraw.

Happy Fourth to my American friends.
