This year's fourth of July is going to be so much better than last years. Mainly because there are no knee injuries to speak of (knock on wood). My little family has a bit of a problem taking care of their legs. My dog Koda has had not one, but two, knee surgeries in his short 6 years of life. Then there is my fella, Bob who tore his ACL last June. For some reason there always seems to be some form of weak, shaved chicken leg that needs some extra care during the 4th. Except this year, everything seems to be on the up and up.
So I am really just excited to chill out, nobody needs to be given any meds, or help getting up. I think I might sleep in, and then lazily make a cherry pie. Since I already have this cute red, white, and blue themed galette made ahead of time.
This is one of the easiest care free desserts to make in a pinch. The only downside is turning on the oven when it's this hot out. Besides that, it is a quick and easy festive treat if you have a few guests you need to impress. That way you can enjoy your holiday as much as I will be!
