4th of July is coming up so fast! I can’t believe it. I’m going to hang with my sister, her husband, and my husband for the weekend. We’re going shopping, playing frisbee golf, shooting some hoops, going kayaking, decorating cookies, and watching fireworks in Des Moines. I can’t wait! In the meantime, here’s some ideas for your holiday weekend, no matter where you’re headed.
Going to a barbecue? Try this delicious chicken pasta salad, or if you want to impress everyone, this patriotic cake is amazing. Need a main dish? These peach BBQ chicken wings look unbeatable. I love the summery twist on an old classic.
Going to the beach? These rice crispy treats won’t melt, and they’re pretty. Also, I’m really jealous because I pretty much always want to be at the beach.
Going out on a boat? Take along some strawberry lemonade, sweetened with honey. So refreshing!
Staying home and relaxing? If you want to bake something easy and adorable, try this sugar cookie idea, using store-bought dough to shorten your kitchen time. The kids can help decorate them!
While you’re watching fireworks, snack on homemade popcorn using coconut oil. This post has a great tutorial. And maybe make some fun cupcakes to share- these celebration ones are kind of awesome.
I’m making my Berry Lemon Cheesecake Tart for dessert, Daisy’s Fudgy Brownies for snacking, and Fresh Croissants for breakfast! I’m also making some vanilla ice cream and sugar cookies to decorate with my sister. It’ll be a sweet weekend. I hope you get to enjoy it! What are your plans?
