Happy 4th of July to all my friends in the USA! We are busy celebrating here in our home and have lots of fun things in store.
I am currently taking a short break, so I thought I would share what we are doing around here.
I’ve been busy in the kitchen all day getting things ready for family to come over this evening. We tend to host the celebrations around here because we are the party house. I love to cook for everyone, and my hubby is the resident pyro in the family. Chandler is learning to love to shoot off fireworks as well. It’s been a process over the years to get there, but he definitely has some favorite things that he likes to get each year now.
I’ve been working on our dinner for this evening. We are having Fried Chicken, Potato Salad, Coleslaw, Watermelon, and Jello Parfait. I’m currently getting ready to make ice cream base so we can make ice cream, and I have cupcakes cooling on the counter. I still need to make the lemonade and then I will be almost ready.
Oh, and I’ve been cleaning. That isn’t as fun, but it’s important. LOL!
This evening will find us celebrating with family and neighbors with good food, and just enough fireworks. We cut back a bit this year as we have several family members that traveled out of town this year. So we have scaled down just a bit. But it will still be fun.
What are you doing to celebrate today? Anything fun planned for this evening?
