I, of course, didn't go to any of them....
All of our workers have the weekend off, obviously, so Trip and I stayed home and listened to some of the events on the radio. (What decade are we in again?)
I searched for a good picture to borrow so I can show you ho dressed up people get for the Independence Day Parades, and found this great one from the San Pedro Sun.
I was in San Pedro last year for Independence Day, but I didn't get to see the parade then, either, because I had to bartend at Pedro's while it was going on. I did get out of there in time to catch the fireworks show, though, and that was pretty cool.
Anyway... in addition to being a holiday yesterday, it as also our anniversary, so Trip and I ditched most of the chores for the day and made some cookies to munch on...
Peanut Butter, Cinnamon, Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cup flour 2 eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar 1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup white sugar 3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt 1 cup softened butter
3/4 cup cinnamon Chocolate!
1 tsp baking soda
In a medium sized bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Put to side.
In a large bowl, mix together butter, peanut butter, vanilla, brown and white sugar. Add eggs and continue to mix until well blended.
A little bit at a time, add the flour mixture into the large bowl and mix well until all ingredients are combined. Add chocolate chips/chocolate chunks.
Roll into balls, place on baking sheet, and bake for 6-8 minutes in a 350degree oven.
Happy Independence Day, Belize!
