If our country is worth dying for in time of war let us resolve that it is truly worth living for in time of peace. ~Hamilton Fish
It is important to remember why we are celebrating this weekend. The 4th of July is a holiday commemorating the adoption of The Declaration of Independence. This is essentially our nation’s birthday and as we celebrate, we should all remember that we are so fortunate. Throughout history men and women have fought to preserve our rights and our freedoms. I am thankful for these freedoms and I will always be grateful. As we head to our bbqs and picnics please say a pray for those men and women that have paid the ultimate price and for those that are still fighting to protect our way of life. Please have a safe and enjoyable weekend. Happy 4th of July!
Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty. ~Louis D. Brandeis
My favorite side dish this time of year is so simple yet so delicious. It can be served chilled or room temperature making it a great picnic dish. Slice fresh tomatoes, fat free mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil. Top with oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste and you are done. It is such a simple and satisfying summer salad (say that ten times fast).
What you will need: Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Fresh Basil, Oil and Vinegar,Salt and Pepper…so simple. ; )
