Thingamajig Tuesdays: 4th of July Recipes Roundup

4th of July Recipes Roundup: A roundup of delicious, summer recipes for your 4th of July celebration!

4th of July Recipes | www.diethood.com



Hey, Lovelies!

Guess what?! I am SO excited for the 4th of July!

For me, this Holiday marks the start of Summer and Summer nights. BBQ’s, friends, flip-flops, maxi dresses… life is good! Also, it means that sippin’ on a few Mojitos, all at once, is totally acceptable. Oh, yes, this day also marks Independence Day. 

In looking around to see what I wanted to make, I thought I should just go ahead and share my 4th of July recipes-menu with you because thinking about what to make can be a total draaaaag. It completely takes away from all the fun. Life is about simple pleasures and enjoying those pleasures – that’s why I’m here – to help you get there. Almost.

Let’s start with the, um, Starters!

Also? You know what goes really, really well with a Pasta Salad? WINE! White Sangria will be served by the barrel. I’m serious. We know how to party… I’ll be taking a nap after the second glass…

I wanna take it easy on the day of the party and just enjoy myself, so I am going to prepare these Honey-Mustard Teriyaki Chicken and Peach Kabobs the night before and just throw them on the grill when it’s time. 

American Cheeseburger at Diethood

We’re also serving THE Classic American Cheeseburger! I’m really looking forward to a couple of those… to be honest, I’m already dreaming about it.

My little, almost-5-year-old wants to make these Strawberry-Kiwi Fruit Popsicles for her friends. Who am I to say NO?

Last, but not least, we’re going to get our patriotic-on with these Red, White and Blue Skewers and a side of Boozy Chocolate Dipping Sauce! Can’t have a celebration without a boozy dessert. Trust me.
