Happy Independence Day, America!  Here are some fun facts about the 4th, you may not have been aware of…

  1. It was actually on July 2, 1776, that America gained its independence.  It took Congress two days to sign Jefferson’s Declaration.
  2. Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on a “laptop,” a kind of writing desk that could fit on one’s lap.
  3. Only two men signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th 1776 – John Hancock, and Charles Thompson, secretary of the Congress.

Now that we all feel more informed, let’s eat!  One of the best things about being an American is that we are literally a melting pot of cultures.  So to celebrate this holiday, make our Patriotic Party Dip (otherwise known as 7-layer dip) for all your guests. It’s always a hit!
