My July 4th Dinner....(Made by Girl)

Today I'll spend the day with my guy. No fancy parties, no extravagant outfits or fireworks, just a nice dinner for 2 at our dining table.

We'll then watch the fireworks from our 3rd floor balcony & then go to sleep! I know.... Boring....but sometimes it's nice to enjoy a Holiday at home. See you tomorrow!

My guy made our 4th of July dinner - here's what he cooked:
 
Stuffed, crusted rib-eye steak
Filling of non-dairy cream cheese & herbs
Crust of herbed, sauteed bread crumbs

Broccoli rabe with
Grilled lemon rind in butter

 

Pasta salad:
marinated artichoke
sundried tomato
sauteed onion
bacon
cucumber

  3. hi Jen, i've been a reader and staunch admirer of you for sometime. i check in every week to see what you've got going on but am not sure if i've actually commented before. so remiss lades, i saw that Linh from La-La-Linh is having a giveaway with one of your stellar art works and gosh i realized i wasn't even a "real" follower. i've corrected this error now, my so bad.

    your 4th celebrations seem ideal to me, way would rather nook with the boyf than any fancy shmancies....not boring at all. and that d-vine dinner is WOW! cheers! ♥

  8. We don't have anything fancy either. We did some grocery shopping and eat at a fast food restaurant.

    Hope you enjoy your day, regardless! The meal looks delicious.
