We spent this year's Fourth of July party at our friend's house (Kim and Lance; check out Kim's family blog!). Rick's mom and sister prepared delicious olive pasta salad, fruit salad, and grilled corn, while I made the snickerdoodles that Rick wanted! We also had vegetarian baked beans on the side. This is what my plate looked like:
|We're all about side dishes. ;)|
|Too bad there weren't any baby carrots for the hummus!|
|Pardon me, I had to use flash for this one. Heheh.|
Finally, we went outside in the warm night and watched our friends light some street fireworks (don't worry; they're legal). Fireworks are pretty difficult to capture on camera!
Oh, by the way, Rick and I found many vegan options up here so far. Take a look for yourself and see the foods we've eaten lately!

|Hummus and fresh veggie wrap from Togo's, also in south San Jose|
|Fruit Tangos from Casa de Fruta in Hollister, CA|
Rick and I only have a couple of days left until the long drive back to San Diego, so I still can't really cook or bake with freedom right now. Chances are, I'll be posting yet another update before then. However, I think Rick's mom has a recipe for us...
