Happy almost Fourth, friendlies! Also, holy moly how is it already July? I know everyone keeps saying that, but for real, I swear it was Memorial Day, like, last weekend. My pasty-white skin also tells me it’s still wintertime (ain’t nobody got time for sunbathing with a bebe, you see), so that’s confusing.
Also, do you say “sunbathing” or “suntanning?” I say sunbathing, but then I feel like that’s a grandma thing to say. But I’m also 90 years old at heart, so, I suppose it’s befitting.
ANYWAY. Let’s talk about some good ol’ Fourth of July grub, shall we? We shall.
I know the holiday is tomorrow so I’m super awesomely sharing these recipes with you at the last minute like a boss, but hey! Most of them are quick and easy and all of them are tasty, so it will be worth changing up whatever plans you’ve got to make one or five of these recipes happen tomorrow. Or I can make them for you and then come over to your shindig as long as you save me one of those neat-o sparkler things and, like, an ice cream sandwich or something. Deal? Cool.
Here are some appetizers/sides/potluckin’ dishes just begging for a mouth party:
Need an entree? Of course you do. Here are some yummy, summery ideas!
