But I don't.
Did it work?
We went over to my dad and Peggy's house for the afternoon yesterday and I brought along The Big Salad and the trifle (maybe I should name it the Yankee Doodle Trifle). At first I pondered making a layered jello thingie, you know, like red, white and blue, but trying to decide how to make the white layer (plain gelatin with milk? sour cream? cool whip?) started to stress me out and I realized I don't even like jello, so I scrapped that whole idea and fell back on a tried & true trifle.
We've always been able to watch two or three different firework shows from the convenience of our neighborhood (and by neighborhood I mean dead end street), which, by the way, YAY, but this year was even better thanks (oddly enough) to all the clearing out of scrub trees that's been done to prepare for a new development over the last year-ish. From my dad's front yard we watched two different sparkly shows, glimpse two or three more in the distance and then see one more from his side yard.
Now if we'd only remembered the OFF.
*How was your 4th?*
*Do you like jello?*
*Did you know jello salads with various food suspended within freak me out?*
*Ever make layered jello?*
