Happy Friday. And happy birthday to America! I was a little sad this morning when FB pulled up my posts from past years on this day.
We were able to celebrate with so many friends in the past years at our annual town square fireworks show that the city puts on.
This year will be so different - no festivities at all at the town square, no gathering with friends. However, we will have a fireworks show at the park very close to our house and we will get together with family and neighbors to celebrate and watch the show. We will still celebrate America!
From our little garden this week, we harvested our tomatoes and jalapeños. I've made lots of caprese salads and bruschetta. Being able to use the fresh veggies and herbs from the garden is a favorite1
I made this Thai basil chicken rice bowl with the Thai basil from the garden. They are growing like crazy!
And I spied this little guy on our jalapeño plant. S/he is so cute!
I tried making a southern supper and I thought I did a pretty good job. It was delish. Chicken fried steak and gravy with fried green tomatoes for the win. This was my favorite meal this week. PS - The green tomatoes were from our garden.
More swimming! It's our favorite thing to do lately.
College tours are back on! It's not quite the same during the summer when school is not in session because you can't quite get the vibe of the college, but with the application process fast approaching, we will take what we can get.
I feel like we are flying by the seat of our pants with this college thing, which is not a favorite, but spending time with this guy is definitely a favorite.
TCU visit, Corona style...
A friend of mine told me about these. They have been added to my regular Trader Joe's shopping list. They are delicious and addictive.
I hope everybody has a great weekend celebrating our freedom, the people who fought
to give us that freedom! Happy 4th of July!
