Did the Fourth of July sneak up on you like it did me? Where has the month gone? Can you believe June is O-V-E-R? If you’re like me, busy with countless other things, and suddenly you check the calendar and June is gone……Here are some last minute plans for Celebrating the Fourth of July ….Begin with your front door…this Easy-Peasy Patriotic Wreath is a great place to start. Nothing says “Fourth of July” better than stars and stripes. This little wreath goes together pretty quickly and you can do it in an evening, watching TV….;)
There are two fruit that scream Summertime: Peaches and Watermelon. What better way to begin a celebration than with a bowl of Watermelon Gazpacho. It takes time to put it together, but Oh.My.Goodness….YUM!
But, if you’d prefer a quick dish to include at your cookout try Marinated Cucumber and Tomato Salad. It’s easy and refreshingly delicious!
If hotdogs and hamburgers sound a little boring this year…..try Grilled Sriracha Chicken and you can throw a little pineapple on the grill, while you’re at it. 🙂
No matter what kind of meat you decide to grill, Southern Baked Beans with Bourbon are a must! I mean, come on…a cookout without baked beans? and bourbon………..
There’s no other way to end a Fourth of July celebration than with Homemade Churned Peach Ice-cream. Perfect ending to a perfect cookout. Now, on to the fireworks!
Even if time has slipped up on you….try one or all of these tried and true recipes for a memorable way to celebrate the Fourth of July.
And everyone ~ Be Safe and Happy Fourth!
