I MADE MY OWN PRESERVATIVE FREE TACO SEASONING.

I ALSO MADE THIS FOR SNACKING ON THE 4TH:

MARY FROM THE BLOG, "HOME IS WHERE THE BOAT IS" PROVIDED THIS RECIPE:

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)

Directions

  1. 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!

FOR BREAKFAST WE MADE GRILLED CHEESE BREAKFAST SANDWICHES:
