Fourth of July
Our annual Fourth of July party was so much fun! (Isn’t it nice that we had the kids eat by the doghouse?) Instead of our usual grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, I decided we would celebrate America with Mexican food. We shredded a smoked Boston butt for pork tacos served with all the fixin's: Easy Queso, Corn-and-Tomato Salsa, Guacamole, shredded lettuce, chopped fresh cilantro, and Homemade Tortilla Chips. (The kids had pizza.) For dessert, we enjoyed Julie's blueberry cobbler, Blackberry-Peach Cornmeal Cake, and Nutter Butter Banana Pudding. The weather was beautiful for an evening outside—low humidity (unusual for this neck of the woods) and a light breeze. We capped off the evening with a trip closer to downtown to watch fireworks. We are so thankful our friends made the trek to our new house for the festivities!
