Monday, July 7, 2014 the Fourth of July with Red, White & Blueberry Sangria

Happy 7th of July! I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend. I had a long four days off and I know it will be really hard to wake up early to go into work tomorrow. (CPB & I had a productive but not particularly exciting Saturday & Sunday spent painting the kitchen & moving furniture to clean the carpets.) On the Fourth of July we had a lovely time with work friends, MMcK, LW & CRV on our patio and watching fireworks. We unintentionally saw two fireworks shows from a hill overlooking La Jolla. A house not to far from the official fireworks was competing (and possibly winning) the fireworks show. Here's a look at the tasty treats we had for the holiday, including the recipe for Red, White & Blueberry Sangria!
