Happy Independence Day!
We had a small family gathering yesterday, but we had enough food to feed the masses. Thanks to everyone who contributed. Our menu was a little different from originally planned when we found out that our grill’s burners were recalled (the new ones conveniently arrived today), but the crockpot entrée allowed us for more time visiting with our guests.
Pickle & Olive Tray
Buffalo Chicken Dip
Assorted Chips, Crackers & Pretzels for Dipping
Pulled Chicken BBQ Sandwiches
Chopped Greek Salad
Fruit Salsa w/Cinnamon Tortillas
Strawberry & Raspberry Fruit Pizza
Earl Grey Iced Tea
I also had punch, chicken dogs, and marshmallows (for roasting) available for the wee ones.
Despite the awesome menu, my 4-year-old nephew wasn’t satisfied after eating a second helping of chicken BBQ, corn and coleslaw. I over heard him talking with my sister-in-law.
Him: Mom, I want oatmeal.
Her: Are you sure? How about more corn on the cob?
Him: NO! I want oatmeal!
Her: I don’t think they have oatmeal here.
Him: Yes they do! I had it last time I was here. Then he proceeded to take her to our pantry door, opened it, pointed to where we keep our oatmeal. So we turned on the tea kettle to warm the water. 🙂
I hope everyone had a great Independence Day!!!
How did you celebrate?
