I mentioned in my last post that my daughter had a fever? Yeah, it got worse and I’m not feelin’ so hot either. I had to send out the “hey, my kid is sick, I understand if you don’t want to come over message” this morning. Most of my friends have young kids, so they decided not to come, which I completely understand as I would have done the same. So, it turned into less of a party and more of a few people hanging out on their day off with entirely too much food. The few who came still had fun, and we all had some good eats. Now I have leftovers for dinner tomorrow, and all is okay in the world…if I can just get the two of us healthy again!
Here was the spread:
Homemade white bean dip & veggies
Obligatory chips and the patriotic plates
Cornbread – jalapeno & plain
Shredded BBQ Chicken
Loaded Baked Potato Salad
My husband’s world famous baked beans
Some patriotic cookies – Thanks Publix!
Red, White & Blueberry Trifle – a BIG hit
Now, I finally have my daughter asleep – here’s hoping the fireworks don’t wake her up and get her freaked out!
Happy Fourth of July everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed time with their friends and family and took a moment to think of and thank the brave men and women that risk their lives to defend America’s freedom!
