brisketWe decided to do a big Fourth of July celebration, just the two of us, in part because we need cheering up.  So I put on a patriotic aloha shirt, with US Navy ships on it, then made some lovely, tender sous vide ribs, collard greens, and sweet corn, and there will be ice cream for dessert as soon as there is room in our stomachs.

And we’re watching Hamilton, which is overwhelming even on the small screen.

Have a good, safe Independence Day, friends, and watch the fireworks from a distance.

Sounds like you;re ready for the big luau!

Heh… I know (from googling) what Hamilton this is, but for a Scandinavian, seeing just “Hamilton”, this is the association:

Prortrayed in movies and TV series by Stellan Skarsgård, Peter Haber, Stefan Sauk, Peter Stormare, Mikael Persbrandt and most recently Jakob Oftebro.

That is quite interesting! It seems as if real-life Swedish espionage and special operations are just as paranoid and weird as Stieg Larsson’s novels.

Unfortunately the Hamilton novels haven’t been translated, though the Templar series is available. (I saw the movie.)
