    Is that bottom left corner the Tijuana dogs? Yum!! We are going to have a fancy hot dog bar at the lakeside “after party” for my sister’s wedding next weekend… those would make a perfect addition to the menu! :) Happy Fourth!

    I love this fruit salsa. It is easy to make and everyone always reaves about it. You don’t even need the added sugar!


    Grilled Feta with chips is another fabulous idea!

    Happy Eating!
