Just in time for Independence Day, Governor Abbot says, “Texas is open…almost.” Practically no outdoor fireworks displays in Texas just yet*, but lots of fun for everyone anyway.
Here’s a great way to spend Independence Day…
- Jump in the pool!
- No pool where you are? Get squirt guns and re-enact Washington crossing the Delaware. Pro Tip: The 13 Colonies (that’s us) win!
- Wear red, white or blue t-shirts
- Grill All-American favorites like hamburgers, hotdogs and corn-on-the cob
- Make a big bowl of potato salad and place some little American flags in it
- Treat the family to a red, white & blue dessert!
Red, White & Blue Dessert:
- 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
- 2 quarts strawberries, halved, dividedv
- 2 quarts blueberries, divided
- In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and extracts until fluffy. Fold in whipped cream. Place a third of the mixture in a 4-qt. bowl. Reserve 20 strawberry halves and 1/2 cup blueberries for garnish.
- Layer half of the remaining strawberries and blueberries over cream mixture. Top with another third of the cream mixture and the remaining berries. Spread the remaining cream mixture on top. Use the reserved strawberries and blueberries to make a “flag” on top.
