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!

Mediterranean Tortellini Salad by Diethood Thingamajig Tuesdays: 4th of July Recipes Roundup

As a Starter, I love to serve a really good appetizer salad. Our party will definitely start with this Mediterranean Tortellini Salad - it doesn’t take long to make, it is delicious, and it will definitely impress our guests.

Cucumber Salad by Diethood Thingamajig Tuesdays: 4th of July Recipes Roundup

I’m also thinking about serving this Radish and Cucumber Salad with Garlic-Yogurt Dressing. I know my Macedonian family will absolutely LOVE IT.

White Orange Sangria Diethood Thingamajig Tuesdays: 4th of July Recipes Roundup

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…

Honey Mustard Teriyaki Chicken and Peach Kabobs Diethood Thingamajig Tuesdays: 4th of July Recipes Roundup

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 Thingamajig Tuesdays: 4th of July Recipes Roundup

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.

And, how can you have a BBQ without Grilled Corn with Herbed Butter?! You CAN’T! We’re probably going to make about 30 of these. No joke. We’re from Indiana… we.eat.corn.

My favorite part, dessert, is probably going to be a slice (or 5) of this beautiful, insanely delicious Strawberry Shortcake Cake.

Strawberry Kiwi Pops Thingamajig Tuesdays: 4th of July Recipes Roundup

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