Celebrate July 4th with Outback Steakhouse

How do you celebrate Independence Day? Before last year, we would go to a parade in the morning and usually cook out with the inlaws in the afternoon, sometimes followed by trying to watch fireworks somewhere. A few years ago we spent it in the Dells and I really enjoyed that. Last year, though, we were invited to my friend Kim’s house of They Smell. The kids had an excellent time there. They got to play with her kids all day long and then her husband puts on an awesome fireworks show after dark. The kids haven’t stopped talking about it since last July. They are counting down the days until Thursday when we make the trek to her house to play for the day. This time we invited our family if they’d like to come so we can still be with family and have a blast with Kim’s family.

If you’re looking for a place to have some dinner before headed out to some fireworks, go head into Outback Steakhouse. If  you say the phrase “Let Freedom Bloom” to your server, you will receive a free Bloomin’ Onion. We went to Outback last night and I almost ordered one. I wish I had!


About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a “baby “chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she’s still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She’s since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.
