Happy short work week! Are y’all gearing up for Fourth of July festivities on Wednesday? We’re having a few friends and family over to swim, eat sticky-sweet barbecue ribs and potato salad and watch the fireworks over downtown Austin from our back terrace. This year I’m feeling a color palette that’s a little more sophisticated in indigo and white…with a few subtle splashes of red thrown in as a nod to tradition. I’ll definitely be incorporating blueberries into the dessert, but I can’t quite decide between this ice cream pie or an always-classic shortcake. What are all of you planning for July 4th? Staying close to home, or taking off for an extra-long weekend away?
