A Fourth of July Feast!

Tomorrow my family, some friends, and I will head out to the lake for Independence Day. It promises to be a hot holiday, perfect for a dip in the lake. Today we are busy preparing our Fourth of July Feast.

We will be serving:

  • Crudites with Dip---Including carrots, celery, broccoli.
  • Hamburgers, Hot Dogs
  • My mother's fantastic Potato Salad---Simple=good.
  • Green Salad
  • Bruschetta with Tomato-Garlic Topping
  • Chips
  • My friend Roz will probably bring her Spinach Dip
  • Berry Cakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream---A recipe from Rachael Ray Magazine. I don't think we will do the whipped cream, as it would probably be difficult to make at the lake and keep cool. Instead, I will probably mix a bit of cinnamon into some fluffy white frosting I got. The picture looks delicious! We got blueberries and raspberries.
  • S'mores
Last year I made RR's Grilled Chicken with Fireworks Sauce and it was really, really good! It was hard to decide what kind of chicken to make this year, but I thought I would try the Spicy-Honey.

You can see the rest of the RR Magazine Fourth of July Feast

What are you having for your Fourth of July Feast?

Sounds yummy & delightful! Our feast consisted of the usual burgers & brats on the grill, Hummus & garlic pita chips, fresh fruit galore, pistachio fluff, gooey chocolate brownies, homemade German potato sslad, and my new favourite cocktail I invented...blood orange italian soda with orange vodka!
