My Kitchen My World: American

This week at Our Kitchen, Our World we're celebrating home, sweet home! Home for me is The United States. It sounded easy at first, but once I started thinking about it ... not so much! We've been doing a lot of grilling out so I figured, no problem. Until, at the end of the week, I realized that we'd grilled Greek, Mexican and Italian and not really anything that could be considered American. LOL! So to celebrate My Kitchen, My World Week Nine we're having a good old-fashioned cookout!

We'll start with a fresh green salad filled with lettuce and red onions from a near-by farm stand and topped with beautiful, American-grown cherry tomatoes from my garden.

What's more American than a burger and fries? This one is topped by a nice slice of locally, Amish-made pepperjack cheese, some portobellos and a slice of big red, juicy tomato.

In Indiana, sweet corn from your garden is a must at every meal!

We'll finish off with a deliciously easy No-Bake Cheesecake from Kevin over at Closet Cooking, topped with some locally grown blueberries. A perfect dessert for a hot Indiana night. (And a great snack for later while you're watching Michael Phelps bring home yet another gold medal!)

Yes - such an american meal - but one I'd go for any day.

Was that bacon on the salad?

Yep! :-) If there's bacon in it, then the kid's will eat it! LOL! And anyway, isn't everything better with bacon? ;-)
