My fourth of July was fantastic but I did a horrendous job of documenting it. Baah. I bring my camera with every intention of capturing all kinds of moments but I totally forget about it. So words will have to do for most of this one…
Independence day started with sleeping in until 8:30! That’s crazy considering I usually can’t sleep much past 7 even on the weekends. I snuck in a little run in the morning, some HP 7 reading (catching up before the movie in about a week and a half!) and researching some grilling recipes which turned out truly delicious! And in honor of Tasty Tuesday I tried some new recipes!
We marinated some chicken breasts in a tequila, lime juice, olive oil, honey, and garlic concoction for a few hourse. After grilling it, I cut it up and turned it into chicken tacos! Oh man, I would totally do that again – ‘twas good. We also marinated steak cubes (for kabobs) in olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar and some garlic. Also delicious. Of course I didn’t get pictures of ANY finished products… but I promise it happened.
I remembered a “before” picture though– looks kinda gross huh?
Here are a few that I remembered to take from the BBQ
Some reeeeally patriotic candles
The park we went to was just across the street from the water
