>Happy 4th of July!

>I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th! This was the first time I haven’t been home to Kingston to play on the lake in several years. But having just been home last weekend, and keeping the roads hot these days, Rog and I stayed put to enjoy a long weekend in Nashville and it was so wonderful.

We got lots of errands done on Saturday, ran a couple of times, and had some folks over for a little cookout and fireworks watching at the Flat, yesterday. We can see the fireworks from the living room, right down West End Ave. Rock.

Making a festive trifle for the party.
Game face…
He was clearly very helpful in the trifle making process.

Red white and blue trifle. Layered angel food cake, blueberries and cut up strawberries that have been coated in cream cheese, and finish with a layer of whipped cream. Layer again all of these again, top with a few blueberries, and serve. Easy peasy! And it was a big hit.
Aunt B – thanks for the trifle dish! It took me a little while, but I finally put it to good use 🙂

Now, onto the baked beans. The massive can of baked beans.

Rog’s homemade guac didn’t last too long.

Lovin’ downtown livin’.

The goods. (Jeff and Cyndy’s homegrown tomato was a big hit!) 🙂

Digging in.

Seriously – second to being on the lake in Kingston, this was the best view on the 4th.

And then as things usually do around here, the night turned into a jam session. I feel about as musically inclined as Helen Keller around these pretty voices and sweet strummers.

This morning, we started our last day of the long weekend with blackberry pancakes – with fresh blackberries from the Farmer’s Market. Yum.

Hope your 4th was as delicious as ours!

And Miss Callie was so good during the party. She only bit one person! And hissed at several. What an angel.

XOXO,
