Celebrating the 4th of July!

I hope that you and yours had a lovely 4th of July!  Here is Washington, July 4th is celebrate here with a bang.  Literally!  Fireworks galore!  They were going on from about 12 noon until 3 AM, with the majority going off between 9 - 10 PM.  Thankfully our neighbors were the ones setting them off, so we were able to celebrate from our own home and we were able to watch the show from our own front porch!  Other than the fireworks, our holiday was fairly low-key; I LOVED it! :)  Although I fully recognize that I am about 10 years behind the times, over the weekend I actually finished reading the Harry Potter book series.  I will admit, I really enjoyed all of them!

To celebrate, it just seemed appropriate to have picnic-y foods. so that is exactly what we did - hot dogs and Cowboy Salsa. Yum!  With my love for salsa, dips and chips - I was excited to try this chunky salsa for the first time.  I found the original recipe on Braised Anatomy and tweaked it a bit.  I think that I will be making it often!  I found it to be delightful! :)

Just mix all these items together. EASY!
1 - can of corn
1 - can of black beans
1/2 cup of diced cilantro
4-ish stalks of green onion, sliced
4 medium size tomatoes
2 avocados, diced
Salt & Pepper, to taste

In other news, check out what I bought the other day!  The fabric store was running a super sale and I just could not resist.  Being a beginner sewer, I am hoping that some of these patterns may expand my expertise. :)
