4th of July

Last week we spent a few days in Tulsa, visiting Matt’s parents. We had a great time and cooked really great recipes (I will expound in a later post). Watched the fireworks from a bridge and while they weren’t spectacular, there were a few opportunities for some cool shots. You can see all of the pictures from our 4th here, but for now, here are a few of my favorites.


The true stars of the day: backyard tomatoes, the ultimate guacamole, chipotle-lime chicken and buffalo burgers, and last but not least, curry-taragon deviled eggs.


A few shots from camping out on the bridge, steadying my camera on the top of the bridge with one hand, myself with the other–all about 100 feet from a bunch of water–not the best idea.

Some fireworks going on behind the Oral Roberts towers and about 8 miles away was “The Biggest Fireworks Show Tulsa Has Ever Seen”
dang it 🙂

My favorite shot. A lovely purple firework set off to our left at some restaurant.


A moody sky. Why is it that it always rains and lightenings on the 4th?

  2. I love love love the blue firework. It’s gorgeous and so is the food! I finally posted my fourth of july eats, but I’m off to New Orleans tomorrow. More food to come.

  3. By the way, I just saw the French Laundry donuts in your photo album. Seriously, can I have your husband?
