It has been a busy weekend with a birthday and family staying with us from out of town. It hit me that July 4th is tomorrow and though I’ve thought about it a little, I never did nail down a great plan for a celebration. I hope the creative juices are flowing today. I looked back at what I made for our meal last year for inspiration.
Is it strange that I always take a picture at our dinner celebrations? I guess my family always did.
Hamburgers–purchased already seasoned
Baked Beans ala can–Jason’s favorite!
Onion rings–straight from the frozen section
Patriotic Pasta Salad
(I found flag shaped pasta and couldn’t resist. I thought it was super fun. The recipe I chose, however, was not any one’s favorite. Of course it would be what I spent the most time making!)
Old Fashioned Dr. Pepper bottles
So there you have it! Who said everything has to be homemade to be fun and festive? That’s what I’ll be reminding myself come Thanksgiving and Christmas this year!
