July 4, 2015


So yesterday was Independence Day.  We really did not do anything special.  We did however enjoy eating some meals together as a family.  Because it was rather rainy most of the day, I was really glad that we did not have any outdoor plans.  We cooked pork in our Ninja cooker along with broccoli and cauliflower, corn and mashed potatoes.  All in all it was a really great meal.

Since the sun was shining today, we grilled outside.  We fixed Shrimp-k-bobs, complete with shrimp, bacon, onions, tomatoes and some had red bell peppers.

We took shrimp and placed it into a Tupperware Season-Serve container.  I added Old Bay Seasoning, olive oil, lemon juice, pepper, salt and garlic pepper and shook the container so the shrimp was coated.


Then we took wooden skewers that had soaked in water (well actually I took skewers) and alternated the onions, bacon, tomatoes and shrimp to begin with (I was waiting for the bell peppers to thaw).


Once I was done with the preparations, my darling placed them on the grill.  In the meantime,  we were fixing Kale, and peas to go with our meal.


Then when everything was ready,  we had a meal to feast upon.




We truly had a wonderful meal.  I really enjoy cooking for and eating with my family.

So how did you spend your 4th of July?  I would love to hear from you.


I am a wife and homeschooling mother of 4. I am a Christian who firmly believes that Jesus Christ died for my sins. We are a military family who just relocated from Pennsylvania to Texas. I enjoy Bible journaling, reading, crocheting, scrapbooking and quilting. I am beginning to attempt art journaling.
