Fourth of July Cherry Valley Style

07-04-09a.gif

It's going to be a stay-at-home holiday for us. I hate driving on holiday weekends, so we usually don't travel on most holidays.

But that doesn't mean we don't have any plans. We are having a neighborhood GTG this afternoon. Lots of good food and wine.

But, first things first. I hung my flag when I first got up.

Check back later - I will add to my post as the day progresses. I didn't want to make you wait until the day was over before I posted!


I am taking two salads to the GTG, both of which have been featured by our Sunday Salad Samplers group.

Black Bean Corn Salad was featured in week #2. I again added asparagus to the other veggies and used bell peppers in four colors. I also added some little tomatoes, a mini heirloom blend that TJ's had this week. Aren't they darling?

My second salad is this week's, which is one I chose, Blue Watermelon Salad. It is actually more like a fruit salad because it also has grapes, strawberries, and oranges in it.

We have these neighborhood GTG's every few months and, as usual, we did not go away hungry or thirsty. I didn't get a photo of the burgers and hot dogs, but take a look at:
