It seems strange to me that we are all celebrating Independence when we took such a backward step in our country. But, we celebrated our Independence since this country's break from England's rule regardless of the rights of individuals throughout the years.

Independence--The Day, A Book, My Thoughts
So, let us celebrate as we always have and appreciate the fact that we do live in a Free and Democratic Country where we can all go out and have our voices heard in the upcoming elections. THAT is our strength, power and Independence.
Speaking of Independence. I just finished reading Sisters Behaving Badly by Maddie Please. It was free to Kindle Unlimited Customers so I downloaded it and read it in 1 day as I lounged in my pool.
This is a very easy read, the hardest part is that you might, like me, have to take a break because your stomach hurts from laughing so hard. Oh my word, but this book tickled me to death.
It is the story of two sisters who had a falling out and hadn't seen each other in quite some time. Their Aunt passes away and leaves them a home in France that they travel to together with plans to finish the renovations their Aunt had started, sell the home and return to their separate, estranged lives.
These sisters are a hoot and they learn quite a few lessons about Independence as they allow themselves the opportunity to live, grow and accept themselves and each other for the wonderful people they are.
If you are looking for a quick, easy and fun read for your holiday....this is it!!
The first night together Kitty, the younger sister, makes a lasagna for Jenny. This reminded me that I had yet to share with you the Beef Enchilada Lasagna that I made for the Teen's 18th Birthday.
Enchiladas and Lasagna are tow of Marissa's favorite meals. She was thrilled with this casserole that combined them into one delicious dish. I made up 2 pans of this lasagna as we were feeding a lot of people. I simply doubled the recipe I found over at Taste of Home.
