Independence Day. 4th of July. Hot dogs. Hamburgers. BBQ. Watermelon. Beach. American Flag. Family. Friends. The bottom line? Aren’t we “Fortune”-ate to live in the good old United States of America? This, being the Chinese Quest, begs the question, how should WE celebrate the holiday? What’s the Chinese equivalent of Hot Dogs? Egg Rolls? May be. But, they don’t look very patriotic, do they?
