Happy (day after) Independence Day!
Along with two old friends and two new friends, Peter and I enjoyed a picnic while we waited for the fireworks show. The last time we saw fireworks, we were driving back to CT from VT the day before we picked up little Maddies. Back in 2008. As you can imagine, we didn’t see many fireworks while cruising down the highway.
Before the show, we ate a few nibbles.
Tea sandwiches, from left to right: Dill egg salad, curry carrot and cheddar, cucumber with herbed cream cheese. We also made curry chicken salad sandwiches.
Our friends made the most delicious popcorn with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.
Half-whole grain, half-regular oatmeal cookies:
Due to my non-awesomeness, I didn’t take pictures of our friends’ other snacks, including the best mint iced tea I’ve ever had and snacks from the Netherlands. Oh, well. You can imagine our feast.
I seized this opportunity to practice taking pictures of fireworks and was only half-successful. My remote trigger for the shutter stopped working, so there’s an annoying amount of camera shake. Settings: ISO 100, f/7.1, 10-20 seconds, manual focus on infinite.
These last two pictures are lit only by fireworks:
Q: How was your Fourth of July?
