Fourth of July Pie
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 c. concentrated lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 to 1 c. strawberries
1/4 c. concentrated lemon juice
In large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in condensed milk. Beat until smooth. Stir in 1/3 cup lemon concentrate and vanilla extract. Pour mixture into baked pie shell.
Chill at least 3 hours.
Slice strawberries lengthwise. Arrange "fallen domino" style in 1 ring around outer edge of pie. For next ring, add a single row of fresh (or frozen, thawed and drained) blueberries.
Slice a banana into 1/4 cup of lemon concentrate and drain.
Place banana slices as next ring. Add another ring of blueberries, then a little "mound" of sliced strawberries in the center.

Beer Can Chicken
There is a rack you can buy at your local store that the chicken sits on.
One whole chicken
1 chicken rack
1 tablespoon lemon juice ( pour in beer )
1/2 can beer or sprite works well.
Put 1/2 can beer on rack and sit chicken on it.
Coat chicken with dry rub and sprinkle some in the beer and on the inside. Use a small potato to seal in the neck. Cook on the grill or in the oven for about an hour and 20 min. In the oven cook at 400 degrees.
I use a dry rub
Dry Rub (yields 2 Cups but keep indefinitely)
1 C sugar
1/2 C paprika
1/4 C Kosher salt
1/4 C celery salt
3 tablespoons onion powder
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons cumin
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 teaspoons dried mustard powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
It is the most delicious chicken you will ever eat.
