To the majority of our readers, it is a holiday weekend, one that celebrates the birth of Canada on July 1st, and the the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on the 4th.

But I only have three things on my mind: fireworks, food, and family and friends.

So how are you enjoying your long weekend?

Here are some ideas to get you started:

And you can never saw no to grilled corn on the cob. Have you never had it? Trust me those sweet, juicy kernels with a hint of that delicious char.. Youll never boil those babies again.

Spend the time with family and friends going on a leisurely bike ride. If you dont have one already, heres a short guide to buying the perfect bike and take the weekend to relax and peruse the local shops for what they have to offer.

If you have nothing planned, take some time to do some yard work. That might include tending to your garden, looking after your lawn, or getting that clothes line ready for eco-friendly laundry.

Hopefully, no matter what you do, the weather complies, and you can spend it outside, relishing in natures own vitamin D.

I cant understand why you wouldnt want to end it with some ice cream. Sure, these ice creams are vegan, but theyll be the best youve ever had. Really.
