4th of July Picnic
The 4th of July is here!
Best. Holiday. Ever. You spend all day eating and
soaking up the sunshine, only to top it off with
fireworks and more
junk food late into the night. Being obsessed with food like I am, the
4th and Thanksgiving pretty much make my year. Come Tues, it's on to
turkey baby. In the meantime, I can't wait to celebrate America and
get out my red, white and blue.
This party gets started
with some festive All-American
frozen yogurt in our nation's colors. Can you say, "Less work than
a flag cake?" My Dad was born on the 4th, so let's just say I've
lined up a few blueberries
on a sheet cake in my day. The goal here is to have
fun for the holiday,
so every recipe in this occasion is designed for early prep.
Picture yourself sitting on the patio with a drink, instead of working away
in the kitchen.
Finish off your spread with some sandwiches:
easy for buffets, and you don't have to remember who hates what!
Making your own hoagies adds a little
luxury to this simple meal, and who doesn't
love a Steak and Cheese? See below for some other fun dessert ideas,
and we'll see you
at the fireworks.
