Somehow I managed to catch a bug in the SUMMER and have been sick with strep throat...yuck! So Dan and I celebrated Fourth of July at home. After reading The Omnivore's Dilemma, we are trying to be more aware of where our food comes from...so we got a grass-fed steak that Dan barbequed, and I made warm corn salad with corn, green beans, onion and garlic from our box, and thyme from the backyard. Quite yummy!
Salad in the fading light
And we were able to see the fireworks from our house! Here is a view of Bernal Hill from Chez Arrow...
Lovely power lines and everything!
Poor Arrow was terrified though, since after the city fireworks ended there were still plenty of booms throughout the night. Independence Day is not for the dogs!
