Today is the 235th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence! Even though the reason for the celebration is often forgotten in the hectic business of family gatherings and festivities, it is an event definitely worth remembering.
HAPPY JULY FOURTH!!
Here are a few quick menu ideas, to help you plan your party. Hope you are blessed with lots of soft green grass to lay out your picnic blanket, and plenty of trees for shade. Here the monsoon season has actually begun, or so we hope, bringing us the first rainfall yesterday since last November! Yippee!! And, no, in case you were wondering, getting no rain for this long is not normal, even considering that we live in the high desert. If you also find yourself living in a state that is extremely dry, please forego the at home fireworks displays. There are beautiful displays in almost all towns across the country, and it would be a tragedy if another wildfire were to begin. Smoke is still hanging very thickly in the air from several wild fires burning in the surrounding areas, namely Los Alamos and Santa Fe.
