Fun on the 4th and a Recipe

The 4th of July was great!

I started the day out with being in a parade, walking with a fire truck and representing our Relay for Life.


With our banner

However, we walked uber fast because the truck was going super fast and we had to catch up lol. And I even knew some people watching because even though it's not my town, locals like to go. I may have given extra candy to kiddos I know hehe.

 Um yeah, they are spazzes. They wanted to dance to the renegade drummers.

Then I walked around with some friends at the rodeo grounds and looked at the bulls.

Beautiful dancing horses

I ended the day at another friend's house for her annual bbq and it was small, but great quality time! I made a salad that was soooo good and used tortilla chips to make it into a dip.

I got the Southwest Black Bean salad recipe from Skinnytaste but tweaked the recipe a bit. Here is what I did:

15.5 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
9 oz cooked corn, fresh or frozen (thawed if frozen)
1 medium tomato, chopped
1/3 cup red onion, chopped
1 1/2-2 limes, juice of
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp cilantro minced
salt and fresh pepper

Mix it all together and marinade for 30 minutes before serving. That's it! Gina (Skinnytaste)  put avocado and jalapeno in hers, but I didn't have those handy, so I did without and it was still fine.

I didn't snap a picture, darn it, but lucky for me Gina took some of hers lol.
