The 4th of July is seriously one of my favorite holidays, so let’s just keep talking about it as it gets closer and closer! Our bash is usually at my parent’s house – they have an amazing yard, nice big pool and plenty of bedrooms to stash all of us and our dogs! The party is simple, which is probably what makes it my favorite. Key ingredients:
- Awesome peeps – you know who you are 😉
- Endless amounts of food
- Games, activities and music
- and of course a few cocktails never hurt! (no worries, the firework tenders always stay responsible..best way to ruin a good holiday is with a silly accident!)
We’ve been talking about our 4th party for weeks! We all love to cook and frankly, we’re darn good at it, so food is always the #1 theme at the party (besides the peeps, obviously). This year we decided on an all-American good old-fashioned 4th of July with good old-fashioned American fare. So we put together a menu and sent it around to this years cooks and came up with this:
