Liberty Blue + a recipe!

Andy's smoking some BBQ chicken for our 4th of July supper tonight, so while we wait for it to cook I decided to show you our set of Liberty Blue dishes we are going to use this evening.  They are perfect for the 4th!  The dinner plate has Independence Hall pictured on the front.
We are also going to be having Aunt Mary Ann's Scalloped Potatoes- they are yummy and gluten free!  So many scalloped potato recipes have cream soups in them but this one doesn't.  So in case you're getting hungry here's the recipe-

Scalloped Potatoes

6-8 large potatoes, diced and cooked
1/2 c. butter
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz. sour cream
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Put cooked potatoes into greased 9x13 inch pan.  Melt remaining ingredients except paprika and pour over potatoes.  Stir to combine.  Sprinkle top with paprika.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Now back to the dishes.  The dessert plate in this set has Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home on it.
For dessert tonight I made the guys some chocolate chip brownies.  I can't have those since I have to be off gluten, so I made myself some black bean chocolate brownies.  Don't those sound good?  (:  They're ok.  When I get desperate enough, I make them.  Of course, every dessert is better with a good cup of coffee, right?  This is the tea cup in the Liberty Blue set, (which we'll be using for coffee later) it has Paul Revere making his ride to tell the colonists that the British were coming.
  So you can see why these are the perfect dishes to use for the 4th of July.  Hope your day is going well and you enjoy the fireworks tonight!
