Happy birthday America (a few days late but celebrations were had on that day)!! I wonder what it was like celebrating Independence Day a hundred years ago. Now we have barbeques and traditional American desserts, games, and beer. And fireworks, of course fireworks. But at what point did we start making pies and Jello and making a party of it? Was it ever just a day of reflection? History buffs, go!
|Such shiny jello squares|
|The final product, it didn't fall apart!!|
|Perfectly sized apple pies|
|See, it's got a snout on the left and a wing on top with little feet...|
