Happy Fourth of July!

We have no plans to see fireworks tonight, as we went to the field at Montgomery High School last night to watch them go off at the fairgrounds. It is a perfect place to do so, and you don't have to fight any crowds...especially in the parking lot. Chris and I took Mom with us. She froze! Note for next year...blankets! blankets! blankets! It was really nice though...we all had a great time! Tonight we're playing Lord of the Rings Monopoly! I am sooo going to win! Chris thinks he's winning....yeah right!

I actually cooked today! I know....what's up with that!? I made homemade tomato basil soup, with basil from my own garden no less. It was amazing! Not a Weight Watcher had heavy cream in it. I also had a head of cabbage, so I made coleslaw from the KFC recipe I found online. It was exactly like theirs. To finish the meal, I made Swedish apple pie. Haven't had it yet, because we're all full of soup and foccacia bread, but I think it's a winner too! I'm so impressed with myself!

Hope your holiday is going swimmingly! That's my word for the day......
