Happy Independence Day

Fireworks last night in Riddle

Our family tradition is to drive down to Riddle and watch the fireworks from the high school football field.  Their fireworks display is the very best I have ever seen and it's right over your head.  The whole town turns out for it and the field is filled with smoke from all the kids setting off their own fireworks along the track.  A local band entertains us while we wait for the sky to get completely dark and we all stand up and join in as a local singer belts out the Star-Spangled Banner.  Then the sky lights up with a spectacular show.

Before heading to Riddle last night, we enjoyed a simple Sunday dinner at our house with my parents.  

Hazelnut-crusted chicken strips
Lettuce from my garden, sliced strawberries, and goat cheese crumbles 
in a white balsamic vinaigrette
Garlic-roasted red, white, and blue potatoes
(which are actually pink, yellow, and purple when cooked, 
but it's the thought that counts)
Kevin's favorite milk chocolate chip cookies

I'm off to pick raspberries at Dillard Farm Market today.
