So what did we do for the 4th?
Well a week with L’s parents we were ready for a weekend in. We spent most of the weekend working on the house, . We also got some quiet time to just regroup together.
On the 4th we celebrated with burgers, local hard cider, and dessert. For the 4th this year I decided to make a new cookie (always looking for excuses to experiment). After research online I decided to make lemon thyme shortbread cookies (recipe to come). To make them festive I used a star cookie cutter.
To complete our dessert I made a berry salad adding fresh mint from our garden, then made some whipped cream with a little vanilla and agave. It was a refreshing and light festive dessert. Maybe a new tradition?
After dessert we drove over to Loon Lake to enjoy the fireworks, we got a perfect spot, closest I’ve ever been to a fireworks show.
Hope you had fun celebrating with friends and family for the holiday weekend.
