Our Fourth of July meal was pretty different than the typical holiday fare. My mom made a black sweet rice dish with coconut, peanuts, and sugar. For dinner, we made gỏi cuốn, Vietnamese spring rolls. It was light, refreshing, and perfect for the hot weather. For dessert, I made a double layer cake, with pineapple, coconut, and a pudding filling. It was my first time making a double layer cake and I think it turned out pretty well. It was my mom's recipe, but I really wanted to bake something. It's also a family favorite, so it was a winning situation for all.
The next morning, I made my own granola, with cranberries and almonds. This might be my new favorite snack to make. It's so easy to make, healthy and delicious. :)
I think it was too relaxing of a holiday at home...it was definitely hard to come back to school.
