4th of July-Some Ideas


The 4th of July is on Saturday. What a fabulous day for the 4th. I’m off work on Saturday, along with Angry Husband and the rest of the family. On Saturday morning, I’m doing the Surf City Run in Huntington Beach.

Everywhere I go online, I see that people are posting about things to do on the 4th, food to make, or desserts to take. I’ve found some great items online and wanted to share with my readers.

Cupcake Kabobs
Kristin from the Meringue Bake Shop has done it again. She posted a tutorial on how to make these awesome cupcake kabobs on the OC Register’s Mom Blog today.


Star*Spangled Fun

Disney’s Family Fun Magazine has a list of 4th of July crafts on their website.

Celebrate Independence Day with clever party invitations, easy-to-make crafts, and star-spangled decorations.

Look at their site to find out how to make this Musical Stars and Stripes Patriotic Wind Chime.


Spinach Salad with Strawberries

Are you serving the usual hamburgers and hot dogs for the 4th. Do you want some unique and different ideas to go along with all that protein? What about a spinach salad with strawberries and raspberry vinaigrette?

This salad was featured in the Kansas City Examiner. It looks delicious and simple to make. All of the ingredients are listed on their site.


Rosemary Peach Lemonade

Would you like a non-alcoholic drink that you could serve to anyone? Something different than the usual lemonade? I found this Rosemary Peach Lemonade on the Food Network’s site.


I hope everyone has a great 4th this weekend. I have a big post coming up…500, yes 500 posts!!! My next post will be my 500th!!!!

OK, now I'm hungry! The cupcakes look delicious. I, unfortunatly, have to work all weekend, but at least it is time/half pay on Saturday. The boys are still to little to stay up and see fireworks.
