Food, Fun, and Fireworks!

Happy 4th of July! Jason had to work the fireworks at Tom Lee Park yesterday and last night, so Macie and I had a relaxing day at home and then went and hung out with some neighborhood friends!  We had a blast!  There were 3 other little kids around Macie's age, so they played while all the grown ups hung out!  We feasted on some amazing hot wings, ribs, potato and macaroni salad, and "buffalo turds" (never had them until today, but they were FABULOUS!!!!) Then we topped off the night with some homemade vanilla ice-cream! YUM!!!  Just as we were starting to call it a night, we were able to watch some neighborhood fireworks!  Macie just watched in amazement, saying "whoa mama, whoa"!  It was a great night!  We are so grateful to our neighborhood friends for inviting us over!! Thanks Jeff and Sharlie!  I just hate Jason missed out on the fun:(  For any of you who are interested, here is the recipe for the "Buffalo Turds"!  They are tasty! 

Buffalo Turds
Jalepeno Peppers
Creme Cheese (softened)
Little Smokey hot dogs

Take the jalepeno peppers, cut in half lengthwise, and strip seeds from the inside.  Spread the creme cheese inside the pepper and then place the little smokey hot dog inside.  Wrap the pepper and smokey hot dog with the bacon and close using a toothpick!  Grill for approx. 20-30 minutes until bacon is cooked! Enjoy!
