The Great American Recipe

Ingredients:

American flag
The National Anthem
America the Beautiful
parades
music
family, friends, love
grill
hot dogs & hamburgers
apple pie
ice cream
lemonade
watch fireworks

Add the first two ingredients. Salute the flag and sing the National Anthem:

The Star Spangled Banner

(The National Anthem of the United States of America)

Oh, say, can you see? By the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air.
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave?
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Add the next four ingredients and burst into song with America the Beautiful. Then add the next two ingredients, grill and serve. Pray together. Top of the meal with dessert of apple pie and ice cream. Pour and serve lemonade. After the sun goes down, watch fireworks in the night sky.

Patriots, proud and free, celebrate the birthday of our great nation. God bless the USA!
