Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays for food. Anyone else or just me? It is totally fine if it is just me.
I LOVE the summer anyway, but let me tell you how much I love summer food. Sure, you can eat these food year round for the most part, but for whatever reason, I associate them with the summer. I don’t know, maybe I am just a little crazy…okay, we know that, but you get the point!
With that, some of my favorite Fourth of July foods
- Pulled Pork
- Angel Food Cake Pudding (with strawberries and blueberries for the colors…obviously)
- Fruit Pizza (using the red, white and blue colors of course)
- Grilled Hot Dogs and Burgers… because well, we use the grill all the time in the summer.
- Oatmeal Cake – okay, I know this is not a specific fourth of July food, but my mom makes the best oatmeal cake ever!
And of course, some of my favorite things to do for the Fourth of July!
- Pop Rocks
- Water Balloons
If you notice, I did not say Fireworks. I know they are so pretty! However, they give me so much anxiety if I am being honest! Most of the time, it is because my kids are sleeping and I worry – am I the only mom? ha! I am working on relaxing, but ya know… ha!
Tell me something you love about the Fourth of July!
