Wishing my fellow Americans a happy and safe 4th of July as you celebrate our countries independence and freedom. To everyone else, I hope you, too, have cause to celebrate your freedom wherever you live.
What kind of celebrations do you have planned for today?
Our 4th of July is going to be a rather low key one this year. My husband is in the Netherlands right now as a spectator for the Tour de France, so the girls and I (and the father-in-law) are feeling a little incomplete without him home with us, but we'll have our traditional 4th of July food for dinner and then walk down to the park to see the fireworks when it gets dark.
4th of July Picnic Dinner
Hamburgers & Hot Dogs
Herbed Potato Salad
Marinated Three Bean Salad
Corn on the Cob
Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream
What are some of your family's traditional 4th of July foods?
I'm actually more likely to serve cut up strawberries and blueberries with vanilla ice cream on the 4th of July... showcasing the red white and blue, but this year I'm more in the mood for apple pie.
