Get Your Eat On

July 2, 2011

It’s the Fourth of July, ya’ll.

Time to celebrate life in the good ol’ US of A.

Fireworks are nice (sometimes), but patriotic holidays like this one are really about something more.  Whether we watch fireworks or not, what do we all do on July 4th?


And drink a little, too.

Because parades are exhausting.

If you are having option paralysis and just can’t decide what to bring to your neighbor’s potluck, don’t worry.  I have done all the planning for you.  Here are the summeriest of the summery recipes and dish ideas for your July 4th celebration or anytime where food, friends, and fun come together.

Go Team America!

    I’m missing the gene that enjoys parades (and camping and blowing stuff up,) but luckily I’m more than genetically equipped to enjoy food and animals in clothes.

    Have a great holiday!
