Celebrated: Fourth of July

5 Jul

Fourth of July was pretty good this year.  Not only did we get the day off in the middle of the week (score!) but the weather held off long enough to see some fireworks.

How we celebrated:


Greek style hot dog with baked beans.  We used smoked turkey hot dogs to make this diet friendly, and of course Bush’s baked beans.

Greek sauce:

1 cup Greek yogurt (non fat)

2 tbsp light mayo

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp grated cucumber

1 tsp lemon zest

1 tsp fresh dill (diced)

1 tsp fresh chives (diced)

salt and pepper to taste


Romain lettuce

diced tomato

diced red onion

spoon sauce on hot dog and top with shredded lettuce, diced tomato and red onion.


For dessert: red velvet ice cream with a red velvet cookie and blue berries (all store bought).  I tried to make the jello dish I blogged about, but for some reason the jello didn’t gel.  Have you ever had that problem?  I didn’t try to add fruit or lick the spoon or anything like that.  The only thing I can think of is that I made the “boiling water” too hot by literally boiling water.  Or maybe there was just something wrong with the jello.  It was in the discount section at the grocery store.  So we had to go out and purchase dessert.  Red velvet icecream by stoneridge is our new favorite.  It is seriously delicious.

and, of course Fireworks!
