Heading out for a nice walk in the city

After walking around downtown enjoying the warm weather, the sun decided to come out!  Because of the sudden change in weather, we had to take advantage of the sun and lay out at the pool for a little bit.  After laying out, we got all cleaned up again and headed out to dinner with Brian’s parents.  We walked to a little restaurant very close to our apartment called Bourbon Street, but I forgot to take a picture of my delicious salad with salmon, cucumber, mozzarella, tomato, and these huge raisins.  It was very tasty and filling.

So many people were out on the canal, I just loved seeing everyone out and about!

So many people on the canal celebrating the 4th!

We then came back to the apartment to get some appetizers and drinks ready for some friends coming over to watch the fireworks.  I made a delicious and simple corn salsa that my mom has been raving about for literally a month!

  • 1 can of corn (drained)
  • 1 can of black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 jalapeno (with seeds for more spice)
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • Lime juice to taste
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and season to taste.  Let it sit overnight so the flavors can meld together.
Brian’s parents also brought over some cupcakes and meatballs to snack on.
We had a perfect view of the fireworks, and the weather was simply perfect.  Not too hot and not too cold.

Hope that everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July!  Good night, back to the grind tomorrow.
