Katie Holmes Celebrates Her Own Independence Day - With Barbecue Fixings!

Katie Holmes is "all right."

She’s red, white – and not so blue anymore!

Katie Holmes, still the talk of every tabloid after her surprise split from Tom Cruise, has wasted no time in starting her new life as a single mom.

In fact, it looks like she’s planning to spend today in her new Manhattan digs enjoying a traditional July 4 feast with Suri.

The New York Daily News spotted the mom and daughter shopping at Whole Foods, putting barbecue-style items like ground beef, hamburger buns, strawberries and bananas into their cart.

Speaking for the first time since the bombshell news, Katie smiled as she told the reporter, “I’m all right. Thank you.”

Suri was cheery too, modeling a sun hat for her mom.Yesterday evening, Katie took her daughter to an ice-cream shop for a summertime treat. A picture of the two shows them smiling and playful.

A witness tells People, “Katie looked happy and was friendly to the customers and staff while Suri sat on her mom’s lap.”

Naturally, they were as stylish as always, with Suri in a $175 Milly Minis dress and Katie in shorts and Yves Saint Laurent wedges that retail for nearly $800.

Yes, Katie is celebrating her own “independence day” in style!
