Michaela McManus, mom of two and star of NBC’s drama The Village, takes us all on a trip to one of her favorite places: home! eat “For breakfast or lunch, I take my kids to Jigger’s Diner (in the town next door) for their famous joh nnycakes. You also can’t go wrong with any of the delicious seafood at Finn’s Harborside.” drink “Whenever I have friends visiting my hometown, I always bring them to Del’s for frozen lemonade. I got married in Warwick at the Aldrich Mansion, and we served Del’s with vodka as our signature drink.” explore “Goddard Memorial State Park is such a peaceful retreat for my family. My kids can kick around on the beach, follow a hiking trail through the woods in search of nature’s treasures or roam the wide-open spaces.”…

red, white and…fun!

DIY AMERICANA VASE White flowers like hydrangeas seem all-American when presented in a vase that evokes the stars and stripes. Measure the vase’s circumference, then cut lengths of patriotic ribbon to size and attach them with double-sided tape. NEW HOT DOG TOPPINGS Summer wouldn’t be complete without hot dogs, but try some unexpected toppings this year. These combos taste incredible: napa cabbage and scallions; purple cabbage and carrots; cucumbers and radishes. FROSTY FRUIT SLUSHIE Enjoy a refreshing drink in minutes with only four ingredients: ice, water, frozen limeade and the frozen fruit of your choice! We love raspberries, peaches and mangoes. EXTRA SEATING When the RSVPs roll in and you realize you need more surfaces, relocate indoor furniture and dust off camping gear like folding chairs and tables. Turn to page 81 for our delicious chicken-dog recipe! goodhousekeeping.com/4th-of-july-ideas…

It has so many helpful tips and tons of recipes, it would be a great gift for someone who was getting married with maybe a cute oven mitt or an apron!

mind these manners and help make the world a kinder place

Push Your Chair In When You Leave the Table It might seem obvious, but don’t make someone else move it for you. Never Show Up Empty-Handed It’s the thought that counts. Bringing your host a trinket of appreciation, a bottle of wine or baked goods is a gracious way of saying thank you. Learn People’s Names Memorizing someone’s name and using it to address him or her is a sign of respect. Always RSVP Respond sooner rather than later so you won’t forget—and so your host can plan accordingly. A simple call or text will usually suffice. Ask Before Bringing a Guest Or your kids. Or your pet. Don’t assume they’re automatically invited, no matter how well you know your host or hostess. Hold the Door Instead of rushing through on the way to work, take a look to see whether…

happier camping

HUNT FOR TREASURE A game that also teaches a skill: Hide dollar-store booty a short walk from your campsite, then give your kids a map (make a simplified version for little ones) and directions so they can try to find it. PLAY GAMES IN THE DARK The night sky adds another layer of challenge to some simple outdoor games. Throw around a glow-in-thedark flying disc or get glow sticks and make an illuminated nighttime ring toss. ENJOY THE CLASSICS You’ve already got your sleeping bags. Put them to work like potato sacks and set up a family sack race. Bring marshmallows for s’mores and the hilarious stuff-your-mouth game Chubby Bunny.…
