Peter wanted burgers and hot dogs this year, so I decided to pull out my Pioneer Woman cookbook and see what recipes she had for the 4th of July. Her menu featured a burger bar...perfect!! I'll link to the recipes I used from her cookbook.
- grilled burgers & hot dogs
- fixins' bar:
sauted' and raw onions, cheese, tomato, bacon,
avocado, mayo, ketchup, mustard, pickles
- corn on the cob
- potato salad
- cole slaw
- baked beans
- mac & cheese
- onion dip/chips/chicken in a biskit
- flag poke cake
Peter grilled but we decided to eat inside by the a/c because it was after 4 and the sun was beating down...hottttt!!!! Everything was delicious, especially the BURGERS and BAKED BEANS, both PW recipes! The burgers had very few ingredients but were very juicy and tasty, and I can't rave enough about the baked beans!!!
After dinner, Peter and I went out on the boat for the rest of the evening. We rode over to the beach for awhile, then all the way around the island, ending up in the bay just before the fireworks. It was very cloudy, so no brilliant sunset, but what a beautiful evening on the water! :O)
Two more items checked off of our Summer Bucket List.....
2/of 15 - celebrate the 4th of July
3/of 15 - watch the fireworks from the boat
We were hoping to make S'mores and fly our kite, but we just didn't fit it in today. So, that makes 3 of the 15 items on the list done, twelve more to go! I know we still have lots of summer left, but it seems like once the 4th has come and gone, summer passes by too quickly!!
