We love the fourth of July! Beginning with the early morning balloon rising...
Where all the family gathers...
Enchanted with the crisp blue sky, and delicious, happy faces
The goofy, darling cousins
And the pure patriotism
Then our favorite part... breakfast at the park.
And after bagels, fruit and hashbrowns.... ice blocking!!!
Thanks Grandma for 15 years of fun!!!!
Of course the day must end with the traditional b-bq! This year we had the juiciest, biggest hamburgers you have ever seen... homemade french fries and of course....
Recipe: 2 pkg Sugar Cookies
Roll out on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes
Allow to cool for a really long time... I like to put mine in the fridge.
In the meantime cut up any red, white and blue fruit. I used strawberries, raspberries, bananas, blueberries and blackberries.
For the cream make a large pkg of vanilla instant pudding. Only use 2 cups of milk instead of three. Allow to thicken in the fridge. Then fold in a large container of Cool Whip.
Start with your baked cookie, add the cream and decorate with the fruit! I only make this once a year - on the fourth of July - and it is highly anticipated! There are never leftovers!
Can't wait until next year!!!!
