A flashback to the Manor Menu days

Our Fourth of July menu...classic, with a southern flair:

Brunswick stew
Corn on the cob
Squash-Parmesan bread
Key lime pie

Also, I happened upon this uninentionally cute and funny BBC Food feature on Independence Day. If you can find me one American family who are having "spicy lamb burgers with coriander, tomato and yoghurt relish" today, I'll give you a hundred bucks. A lot of people in the U.S. have never even tried lamb. But I really appreciate the effort anyway, and I'm sure it's no less authentic than our attempts to fabricate British menus. It's nice to have a culinary hat tipped in our direction on our big holiday.
