Although I am not a “foodie” I do love to talk about food and in particular food for parties. I love picnics, pot lucks, ladies day, family get togethers, you name it.
Wherever there is a large and diverse amount of food I like to talk about it and more importantly plan it. Since the fourth of July is right around the corner I have been perusingPinterest,Country Living,Midwest Livingand various other sites for interesting recipes and fun ideas. I found some great things and I think I will make a few for my own fourth celebrations.
Hamburgers and hot dogs are standard fare for the fourth, how about a few brats, pulled pork sandwiches, or little sliders?

Sides and Salads
Is there anything better than roasted corn, fresh from the vine tomatoes and potato salad? I found these great images and recipes atBetter Homes and Gardens.
Or perhaps some roasted tomatoes, Tex-Mex salad, macaroni and cheese or roasted fingerling potato salad? I found these recipes (and images below) atMidwest Living Magazine.
And lets not forget my favorite food at every party, Dessert!
What are your 4th of July plans? Are you going to any picnics? Pool parties, lazy days at the beach, camping? Do you have some fabulous family recipes that you make for your celebrations that you can share?
I would love to hear what you are going to be up to! I hope you have a great day!
On a side note, I am headed to the doctor today to get the results of some tests that I have been having done over the last few weeks, wish me luck and say a prayer that the results are good! Thank you!
