Still Blowing Out the Fireworks

I'm in day-after Fourth hoopla mode. Hope you don't mind, but I need a reprieve today. Just getting off the highway and feeling a tad peaked.

That's me, brother John and my cute Mom on one July 4th maaaaany moons ago. (O'Donnel family photo)

Wondering, though, what you ate and drank yesterday, and if you've got any recipes to share that knocked the red, white and blue off your socks. Any tasty treats to share or juicy stories to tell? Do so in the comments area below, and I'll be back in working order tomorrow, just in time for the weekend.

Thanks Kim for the great idea for the quinoa and chickpea salad. I used your ideas, added couscous (didn't have as much quinoa as I thought), tomatoes and some green onions in addition to your suggestions, and it was a big hit with everyone. (One of the people at the party even recognized it from your chat!) Thanks for your stellar ideas!

Blueberry lemonade, yumm! (No need to say more!) Thanks for the suggestion!

I drank beer and grilled burgers (in that order).
