I MADE MY OWN PRESERVATIVE FREE TACO SEASONING.
I ALSO MADE THIS FOR SNACKING ON THE 4TH:
To 2 – 3 avocados, add 1/4 cup of onion (I used red), 1/2 cup each diced plum tomato and chopped cilantro, lime juice and salt to taste.
I bag of Trader Joe’s frozen fire roasted corn . (If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, grill 2 ears of corn until charred and cut off the kernels.)
Add 6 slices crumbled cooked bacon
and 1/3 cup chopped pickled jalapenos
FOR THOSE WITH A SWEET TOOTH I MADE A FLAG OUT OF RASPBERRIES, MINI MARSHMALLOWS AND BLUEBERRIES.
AND WATERMELON CUPS WITH PINEAPPLE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING (AGAIN FROM MARY'S BLOG.)
1/2 CUP BUTTER (ROOM TEMP.)
1 8 OZ. PKG. CREAM CHEESE (ROOM TEMP.)
4 TBS. PINEAPPLE JUICE
4 CUPS POWDERED SUGAR (SIFTED)
- Cream the butter and cream cheese together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add the pineapple juice and continue beating until absorbed into the mixture. Beat the confectioners' sugar into the mixture a little at a time until completely integrated.
I DECORATED COOKIES AND CONES LIKE THESE FOR THE HOLIDAY.
OF COURSE THE "OREO'S" WERE GLUTEN FREE!
