If you're new here you don't know it but the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday.
I'm not sure what it is but I love it.
Click here for some of favorite July 4th's and here for the July 4th weekend Brad and I got engaged.
As I posted last week -- this year we'll be at the lake with my parents and Brad's parents. It should be fun and I'm already planning what foods to bring.
Here's one that is for sure on our menu.
Watermelon, Feta and Blueberries.
Umm.. Yes, PLEASE!
My boss - who also loves festive food for each holiday suggested these too - found here at SnackPicks. I'm not sure I'll get around to making them or not. With the kids not around I'm not sure the adults will appreciate them as much.
Not so much festive for the 4th, but always a big hit - I will be making muffaletta on a stick - found here at Miss Janice's blog. I made these last year and Brad requested again this year. Maybe I'll make them a Fourth of July tradition?
I also, have a fun watermelon cocktail and some other apps I'll be bringing and next week I'll be doing a giveaway of some of items I'll be using. Stay tuned for that!
As far as main entrees - my in-laws are smoking ribs one night and Brad and I are trying to figure out what we'll do the other.
He suggested jambalaya and I said gourmet burgers.
What are your 'go-to' Fourth of July food traditions? We need ideas so throw them out there!!
