I have to say that this was the best Fourth of July ever. My husband and I decided that this year we would simplify things and spend holiday at home with our kids. That turned out to be a great decision! On Sunday, my husband sat down with the kids and showed them how to play chess. C caught on rather quickly. W… well she didn’t do as well. While I was cooking for our celebration, he played Monopoly Junior with the kids.
I love cooking for holidays. I always put together an elaborate menu that reflects the feelings and traditions of the occasion. The Fourth of July evokes a menu of simplicity and comfort.
- Roasted Corn with Chile Lime Butter (recipe follows)
- Potato Salad
- Pioneer Woman’s Knock You Naked Brownies
I wanted to take pictures of the fireworks in the neighborhood; but I’m still learning how to use my Nikon D3000 , so I wasn’t quick enough to catch a good shot. Or any shot at all. The day ended with the children staying up way too late and finally crashed in various parts of the house. Best weekend ever!
