Happy 4th of July!!

Have a happy safe 4th of July!

Don't forget the reason we are celebrating and those who make it possible!

I, for one, cannot wait to make some of the fantastic blogger recipes I've been finding.  Several have posted Patriotic Strawberries, I have all the fixins and can't wait to try them!  Dip clean strawberries 3/4 of the way with melted white chocolate.  Then either get blue meltaways, dye white chocolate blue, or use blue sprinkles, and dip again 1/2 way so you see the red of the strawberry on top, then the white chocolate, and the blue.

Check out the cute pictures here and here!

A short poem to honor my favorite summer drink:

No matter if I'm happy or sad,
excited or blue,

MARGARITAS always pull me through!

Which makes me wonder, anyone have a great margarita recipe?  I think a margarita week is in order..margarita bread, margarita cupcakes, margarita chicken maybe?

Do such recipes exist?  I need to get to the bottom of this.

Please excuse the rapid change in subject, I was overcome with emotion at the thought of margaritas..

Thought process..

Mmm I'd like to grill tomorrow.  Hot dogs to be quite frank.  Just plain old yummy scrummy hot dogs to celebrate the 4th.  Beer would be nice but margaritas even BETTER!  YES!  Margaritas are definitely in order.  **Pause to text hubs to please if he would be a lamb and pick up tequila?** Ooh margarita cupcakes sound scrummy yummy.  Insert above text.  Random, see, but not really.

Please have a fun and safe holiday!!
