Happy 4th of July! - 07/04/14
I love this holiday. Everything about it is wonderful. Gathering in the summer with family and friends, grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, snacks, cold beer and all the sweets you can eat! Sounds like my kind of fun. In fact, I drove into work today blasting John Phillips Sousa marches. Later I'll be listening to the 1812 Overture. I can't go one 4th without hearing the 1812 Overture. I guess it's sorta like a personal tradition.
This year I'm working the 4th of July, but was glad to hear my co-workers say they put on a BBQ every year. So, I whipped up some tasty rice krispies treats, patriotic style. It's super easy, I'll leave you the recipe below. Hope everyone has a great 4th of July and Happy Birthday, America!
