Happy 4th Of July!
Kaboom! Slurp! Eat! Kaboom! Slurp! Eat! That is what my night consisted of. We had a house full tonight. My mom, her boyfriend, my dad, his wife, my grandparents, one of my brothers and his friend along with my family of four were here hanging out. You could hear fireworks going off all around and still can. We had a bbq and some drinks. Hmmm...let's see. What didn't we grill? We had some smoked turkey breast, some brats (sweet ones and spicy ones), hamburgers, and some pork chops. We were going to have hot dogs too but hubby forgot to grill them. Ooops! Oh well. Not like we didn't have enough already! Mom also made some potato salad and brought some cut up fresh bell peppers. Think there was red, green, and orange ones. Those went well with the ranch dip and french onion dip I had for the chips. My dad brought a big ol' tub of cottage cheese. My daughter LOVES cottage cheese! She'd probably eat it everyday if we had it! My grandma made this famous peach orange salad that she makes for nearly every gathering. It is so good! Hmmm...guess that is all the food. For drinks there was beer, calypso coolers, and bahama mamas. They were oh so tasty except the beer! I don't like beer much anymore. I prefer the more girly fruity drinks. I think I had 5 of them tonight! Hehehe! So did mom and she has to work in the morning! I don't! I hope to sleep in a bit if the kids will let me. Soooo.....that was my evening. We have SO many leftovers too. Anyone hungry?
