The thing about the 4th of July celebration in Benicia is that you know what you're going to get--some may look at this as a bad thing, but we like it, because it is always quaint and festive.
This year included homemade sour cherry pocket pies and the ever popular parade on July 3.
I made the pocket pies from scratch--but since this kind of thing can be rather labor intensive, I definitely broke it down in stages and heavily utilized the freezer so that when I got home from work on Sunday (ugh, I know), I could just pop them right into the oven!
Perfect size for each person.
And don't forget the best part--dogs!
Until next year, Happy 4th of July! Can't believe it's already over...
