Happy Independence Day to all of our McNack’s Kitchen followers!
Having just returned from an amazing family trip to Virginia and Washington DC, I am even more thankful for the genius that was our founding fathers. The vision they had to establish a country that is still the most amazing country in all the world is impossible for someone like me to comprehend. To allow for change as we change. To allow for separation of powers. To allow for a government by the people and for the people. To allow for a government based on laws and a rooted in the fact that all men are created equal. To acknowledge that each person’s unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is endowed by their Creator and not by government. ‘Tis a thing of beauty and I am in awe.
So enjoy pursuing a little happiness today and remember those who gave their lives so that we may have our lives and our liberty.
Oh, and if you need a simple dessert idea to celebrate Independence Day, this parfait with strawberries and blueberries is just perfect. Layer it with ice cream, whipped cream, yogurt or sweet coconut rice.
Enjoy the day!
