Fourth of July Recipes

Guest Author - Sue Simonds

On July 4th 1776 the signing of the Declaration of Independence took place and was signed by the Continental Congress. As I sit here, I am amazed at the Country we live in and wonder what it would have been like to be a witness to that signing or better yet, a participant. Not that women had that authority then but the women of that time were of great influence to some of our great leaders, some stayed in the shadows and others led by their compassion and faith were a solid example to their husbands. Integrity and character always follows from these attributes.

I am going to include some of my links for recipes that I think you’ll enjoy for this celebration. Whether it’s just you and the kids or the whole family and friends gathering, enjoy the day and celebrate our independence as a country and have fun and the fireworks are always a special treat too.

Here are some thoughts for the kids……pick up some flags for the kids to wave, print off a copy of the Declaration or some profiles of our Presidents to color and name. Copy the thirteen colonies and discuss what changes have taken place over the past 200 plus years. Decorate with red, white and blue, kids will love this when decorating cupcakes and cookies too. Instead of sparklers for your food (they leave little metal clumps on your goodies) Partytime makes a sparkler candle that’s a lot of fun….be creative!

These are just a few tasty ideas for you and if you’d like to go with “burgers and dogs” mix up your burger….when forming your patties add in a little breakfast sausage or sweet sausage, maybe some roasted garlic or chopped onions and bell peppers. Wrap a strip of bacon around your hot dogs and secure with toothpicks while grilling (take toothpicks out before serving) these are great, served with a little sweet and mild sauerkraut….yummy.

Well, I hope this gives you some fun ideas and you have a wonderful fourth!! Remember to be safe and as always be blessed and have a great weekend!!
