Preparing for the 4th

The Fourth of July is right around the corner and I am really excited. This year it even falls on a Saturday, which makes the festivities even better.

I'm still debating on what foods I will be making, because I love an excuse for a cook out and feeling a connection to home. Fortunately while I was in Ohio I was able to buy some of my favorite sprinkles and now I just need to decide on a menu.

I'd love if I could get out to pick some blueberries and enjoy some fresh summer foods.

What are your favorite things to eat on the 4th of July?

I can't believe its almost the 4th!! And yes, those are my favorite sprinkles too!!
Will you be having any people over? Interesting question you've posed. I'll probably be spending my day of cleaning thinking over 4th of July food :)

I wish I would have known so I could have brought some for you. At our university we had them in our cafeteria and if they ran out we'd always put a note in the comment box about how we had to have them with our ice cream.

Unfortunately with such late planning and the rainy weather I think it will be a low key day for us as well. I need to start an annual 4th party like your Thanksgiving!

Can't wait to hear what you cook up!
