We have a busy July 4th planned. We are going to a few pool parties and to the lake over the weekend. The good part is that I don't have to cook 3 meals a day!! But, I do have to take dishes to a few different places. Since some of the same people will be there - I need to take different things every day. Today I'm sharing some great foodie pins! If you want the recipe, click the pic.
Last year, I made baked potato salad. It was "okay" - not great, but not bad either.
Last year I also made my "go-to salad" for my sister's pool party. I omit the avocados and I candy the almonds. Everyone in my family loves it, so it was a hit.
This year, I'm making dessert. I'm trying this cookie recipe. I made a sample this week and again, it's okay.
Tomorrow night we watch fireworks from our back porch. I'm making pulled chicken sandwiches with coleslaw, grilled corn-on-the-cob and my dad's chessy potatoes. It is inspired by this pin.
I'm taking chips & dip to my Dad's @ the lake. Seriously? I've NEVER taken "just" chips to anything before. Guess my brother decided to bring drinks this year;) I am making my famous Mexican Spinach Dip. It's 2 cans of rotel, 1 big block of velveeta, 1 block of cream cheese (or 2 if you prefer) and 1 pkg. of frozen spinach (thawed & drained). This time I'm subbing the spinach for a pkg. of TGIF's spinach-artichoke dip. It was a hit for our Father's Day cook out and my Dad requested it again. It's a quick one if you need to whip something up fast;)
