fourth of july food

Hello Everyone!

Happy fourth of july week! It is kind of a weird work week for me – and I suspect many of you too. Work a bit, take a break, work a bit more and then another weekend is here!

I’m not quite sure what our plans are quite yet, but I’m hoping it involves a pool and a grill. :)

This is what I want to eat and drink!

    I just started thinking about the day’s food. We are doing a big neighborhood parade and cookout for lunch, so that meal is taken care of. I’m thinking veggie burgers for dinner with homemade jalapeno cheese bun recipe that I just cut out of the paper. I’ll also let the kids make a red white and blue parfait with blueberries, strawberries and their beloved whipped cream. I need that watermelon keg….

    This list is making me so hungry! I came down with a bad stomach ailment (still not sure what’s up) and really SHOULDN’T be eating any of this stuff yet, but want it! :) Hope you guys have a really fun 4th!

    This is quite the line up! Thanks for the mention Emily! How adorable is that watermelon keg?? We are going to be in the cities for the 4th, so we made it to the lake last weekend since we will not be able to be there this week. I hope you guys do something fun to celebrate!
