Fourth of July Food!

Today we opted for a simple fried chicken dinner created by our very own original recipe, courtesy of Col. Sanders. LOL!  I did, however want a homemade dessert so I fixed this Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.  Yummy!  My hubby does not like rhubarb so I made brownies for him. 

Even though we were having take out I still wanted to have our table set nicely for the holiday.  I used my blue ball jars and festive napkins. 

Here's the links for both recipes:  Strawberry Rhubarb Pie  I made a little different version this time.  It had two crusts I think I prefer the crumb topping it highlights the fruit more!  My rhubarb was pretty tart I think the added sugar would have been better.

Ree's version of Killer brownies, Knock you Naked Brownies from Pioneer Woman.  Gotta love her she cracks me up!  I omitted the nuts and I used the ready made carmel sauce.  I wouldn't recommend this though.  I made these before and I think the original recipe is better.  Mine were a little more dry than I'd like.  They were still moist but not ooey gooey!


Hope you had a great holiday and looked for the blessings in our american life!
