How was your holiday weekend? We both wish that every week ended with a three day weekend. We had a easy weekend at home. We made an apple pie, grilled some hot dogs, and did our yardwork. And spent a good chunk of time napping too!

Eat a good old American flag cake, while watching fireworks in red, white, and blue.
peach crisp and vanilla ice cream
I usually stick with something apple-y for dessert on the Fourth, but I decided to try peaches this year. I really wanted peach pie at the wedding, but they weren’t in season there yet. So I have had a hankering ever since.
Our air conditioning decided not to work that day. I think it was making a point that it was a holiday. So I tried to get all my baking done in the morning before it got blazing hot. I managed to make a peach crisp and the ice cream base before noon. I called my ma to ask if it was ok that the ice cream never got fluffy enough, and she assured me that it will taste just fine. She is always right.
