I forgot to mention in my last post that I hoped your 4th of July was "filled with lots of wonderful bar-be-que, fireworks, friends, ice cream, WATERMELON, and lots of red, white, and blue."
I didn't have watermelon on the Fourth.
We had Butterfinger Ice Cream instead! Yummy!
It's my cousin Janet's recipe and as soon as I can swipe the recipe from my mom, I'll share it with you.
Truth be told, I just wasn't feeling the Fourth this year. I didn't feel well and most of our friends were out of town due to a long holiday weekend. Wayne asked me if I wanted to throw something together as in a party and I told him no. Angie was out of town visiting her family in Alabama and it just didn't feel right this year with her not being here. We've gotten together for the last three years to celebrate the holiday. So we celebrated rather quietly with mom and dad. Daddy grilled burgers and we had baked beans and potato salad. Then later that afternoon, we had homemade Butterfinger Ice Cream.
Did I mention it was yummy?
That evening, we went to see the fireworks in another neighborhood nearby.
Here are a few pics!
