4th Of July Food Ideas 1

I’ve been busy preparing some of our favorite recipes to show you that we are going to have for the holiday.  When I have company over for the 4th of July I want food that is easy to put together, but filling and fun.  With parades, activities, family time, and fire works it’s the only way to go.  Here’s my menu and recipes for the upcoming 4th of July.

Be sure to stop over and see 4th of July Recipes 2 and 4th of July Recipes 3.

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.
