Happy 4th of July week, everyone! Do any of you have big plans? I'd love to know!
For my family, the 4th of July has always been one of our favorite holidays. My mom would always make a variety of fun treats, we'd grill out for dinner, and then we'd invite our neighbors over to watch fireworks in our front yard (my parent's suburban neighborhood in California allows fireworks as long as they're not airborne...which doesn't stop some people, but my family always kept it fun and tame.) We would sit on blankets and benches in the front yard and chat the evening away with our neighbors while snacking on the delicious treats my mom had made and watching my dad light the fireworks. For us, it was the perfect way to celebrate.
This year, Michael has to work and we're not near any of our family, but that's okay because we're preparing to go visit my grandparents and see my family. We're really excited! However, that doesn't stop me from considering fixing up some of these delicious 4th of July themed treats! Whether it's a red, white + blue wedding, a bridal shower, or just a gathering of friends, these treats should be the perfect accompaniment!
