Happy Birthday, America!

I may not always agree with our government, but I'm still proud to be an American.

I do love the Fourth of July. I'm not bothering with fireworks again this year (will watch on T.V.), but I am going to watch 1776 tonight! I was very happy to see that it's actually going to be on T.V. for a change (I think it's on Turner Classic Movies), but I have the DVD anyway.

Had a late lunch with the family- I made the best fajitas ever. I found a great marinade, and used skirt steaks, which were grilled until nearly well-done and then sliced. They were perfect. I also made my famous black eyed pea salsa, and some mango salsa as well. I've posted the black eyed pea recipe before, but here is my made-up mango recipe:

1 mango, peeled and cubed.
1 cup pineapple chunks, drained
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
Juice of one lime
3 chili peppers, seeds removed, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped.

Combine ingredients in a bowl, and refrigerate for at least two hours. Serve with tortilla chips. Or roast duck!   (ten points and a cookie for whoever guesses that reference!)
