Let Freedom Ring

Every good holiday starts with good food-right?  Addy and I made a Cornmeal Blueberry and Raspberry Cake adapted from Martha Stewarts Blackberry version.  I added vanilla to the recipe!  It is a perfect cake because it is not to sweet!  I also dusted the top with powder sugar.  Despite monsoon rain being in the forecast for the whole holiday, we didn't let it from stopping us from celebrating.  How do you celebrate?  Is there a particular food you just have three have on the 4th?  Sadly, grandpa has to go back to Phoenix !  Boo hoo!  We will miss him; especially Addy who just adores grandpa.  Frank and I are off today for a little time to ourselves.  We are taking a cruise to Key West, Cayman Islands, and Jamaica.  I can't wait to sleep in!  I also have to books that I am looking forward to reading.  See you when I get back!


Enjoy your time away!! I love your photos from the 4th - we had hamburgers over here..but missed the fireworks, watermelon and macaroni salad. I'm sure on the 14th of July here - we'll see some fireworks - celebrate Independence from my adopted country! So special to see the different generations together!
