A Summer Saturday

Pretty much another 4th of July day!  In the morning we walked downtown to the Farmer's Market, and brought home a bag of wonderfulness.  The baker from La Baguette in Minocqua came down with fresh bread, so we bought a number of small loaves, including a baguette, ciabatta, bacon & cheese loaf, a french loaf, and small pear tart.  We also bought a bunch of fresh baby bok choy to make a salad we just call "Angie's salad" afer our friend who first made if for us!  
Later in the evening we walked down to the riverfront and brought a blanket and picnic supper of our baguette, apples, havarti cheese (our current favorite), the tart, and leftover pear bread.  We found some friends (Allords and Brunners) already camped out at a spot for fireworks, and spread our blanket beside them.  The fireworks didn't start until almost 10 pm, but were absolutely fantastic!  They touted it as their "largest display ever," and it certainly was that.  They did such a good job of getting an incredible variety of fireworks, and obviously decided that bigger was definitely better!  Afterwards we walked home, thankful we didn't have to try to escape a parking lot and brave the streets in the car!

Ha! I had to laugh at the "Angie Salad." Is that a reference to me? We had Bok Choy Chinese Noodle Salad on the 4th as well. Sounds like you guys had a great weekend. Looking forward to seeing you next week!
