Happy 4th of July!

Our 4th of July was pretty quiet.  Just the two of us and the dogs.  Since it looked like it had finally quit raining after 4 days (which is rare here in Dallas in July) we decided to grill.  We went to our local Tom Thumb to pick up a few things for our 4th of July dinner and the place looked like a swarm of locusts had been through.  I couldn't even find cherry tomatoes!  Well, I guess that's what happens when you wait until the last minute.

So I marinated boneless, skinless chicken breasts in Italian dressing for approximately 4 hours and around 5PM, Daniel fired up the grill.

And while he did that - I did this....

And in an hour, we had a delicious, 4th of July dinner!

We were going to sit out on our patio and sip Margaritas after dinner, but it was too darn hot and humid - even with the fan on.  So we sat in the living room and watched "A Capitol Fourth" on PBS. 
Not quite as much fun as live fireworks but it was much cooler and there weren't any mosquitos!

Hope all of you had a wonderful July 4th!
