The 4th of July weekend is over and I hope you had a great one.

The weather was perfect here and we indulged in some delectable delights.

Watermelon Salsa Recipe :: AnExtraordinaryDay.net

 

This delicious Fresh Watermelon Salsa is so good.  With watermelon season upon us, I thought I’d pull it up from the archives so you can add it to your summer supper and entertaining menu.  Enjoy!

 

Before the big holiday weekend I put together a round-up
of Last Minute 4th of July Ideas from last week’s link party!!
