Red, White, and Good friends





We had a great 'Declaration of Attendance' party last night. Luckily the rain held off... although the mosquitos didn't. July in Alabama~ Thank goodness for the sangria.




We had some good eatin', everyone brought something to go in the Low Country Boil. Shrimp, Corn, Sausages, and Potatoes. 2 huge pots. Yum!

We had great southern desserts. Rhoda brought her yummy coconut cake, and Coy made a red velvet cake. I will be begging them for those recipes and post them soon. Bill is still talking about the desserts!Now that is red, white, and blew!
Hope y'all had a happy 4th of July~

Hi Sandi,
We had what you call your Low Country Boil too. Up north here we used my daughter-in-law's family recipe that they call Frogmore Stew. I have no idea why they call it that ;) Yours looks great and the deserts look delicious.
Hugs,
Sue
