Happy (Almost) July 4th to all my US buddies! Our traditions include making our own ice cream and sparklers and snap bangs. That's as crazy as we get here...we add viewing fireworks if we're feeling saucy and occasionally my firefighter husband rides in the parade and lets the kids ride too. Here are some fun games for kids if you're looking for ideas, including a Patriotic Scavenger Hunt.
And here are two great recipes for get-togethers. Fresh pineapple and watermelon with blueberry stars! Yum! Serve with our favorite fruit dip recipe here. I usually add a little cinnamon to the regular cream cheese version and use strawberry cream cheese instead sometimes. It's so good!
And doesn't this look like fun if you're not barbequing? Or you could make chicken and add it to this pasta dish. And then invite me over!
