5 Red, White and Blue Strawberries!

This past week I have been a little discouraged about the fate of our country. . . but ladies and gentlemen. . . GOD and LOVE of our GREAT nation IS ALIVE AND WELL in small town USA! :-) 
This weekend, we visited sweet friends  . . 
went to the Belton Rodeo . . .
ate amazing barbecue. . .
Had dinner overlooking the lake
went to the oldest 4th of July parade in Texas 
Hung out with some of the cutest kids EVER 
AND made Red White and Blue Strawberries! 
These are SO easy, yummy, and PRECIOUS! 
Just take white chocolate and melt it in the microwave
Dip the strawberries in the white chocolate and then in the blue sprinkles 
Refrigerate them and ENJOY! 
We are resting for a second before heading to a friends house to watch fireworks (yes, I guess our concrete jungle is good for something. . . we can have fireworks even though there are burn bans ALL over Texas) 
Hope you are having a MAGNIFICENT 4th of July and DON"T FORGET TO ENTER THE COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pin It!
