The T-bone and rib eye steaks are already soaking in Teriyaki marinade in the fridge - we are having them with baby spinach salad with candied walnuts, dried cranberries, crumbled bleu cheese, and a raspberry vinaigrette (thanks TJ). That's for lunch, with mint-chip ice cream for dessert.

I have a dinner party planned with a mediterranean/middle eastern finger food theme - tomato basil and olive hummus with baked pita chips and spanokopita. I have Sara Lee strawberry cheesecake ice cream that Breyer's makes planned to serve after dinner. It is HOT in Southern California today, and it will be even hotter tomorrow!

FEVER!

1lb. ground beef
1lb hot breakfast sausage
3 cans cheddar cheese soup
1 jar Trappeys peppers
Lots of cayenne pepper

Brown meats, chop peppers, add cayenne. Dump everything into a crock pot and let it simmer. The longer the better.

My friends and I are going to put together an assortment of cold food to graze on. We're thinking gazpacho, a variety of cheeses, guacamole, salad greens, olives, good bread, melon, etc.

We're doing the traditional hamburgers for our annual firemans BBQ. Everyone brings side dishes. I am bringing chocolate cake, brownies with cheesecake filling on top and deviled eggs. SIL is bringing a veggie platter.

It is just going to be DH and I as well. The kids have scattered. We're having:

barbecued chicken (I rubbed it down yesterday, grilling today)
grilled peaches n cream corn on the cob, in the husk
marinated cucumber, tomatoes and vidalia onions (I've been sneaking samples of this all day!)
everlasting coleslaw
red skinned bacon potato salad
deviled eggs
lemon poppy seed glazed cake
sugar doll watermelon

With only two of this now I guess we will be eating on this for several days and I see pulled chicken barbecue sandwiches in our future!

My daughter is away today so its just me...

I did however buy some split chicken breasts, I think I am going to make all those up and use a little of the chicken to make me so chicken enchiladas. I will put white cheese, some green chilis and some chicken inside and then put a mixture of some green enchilada sauce and some cheese sauce on the outside.

My daughter loves Mexican food so much, I am going to keep the bag of shredded chicken so when she wants to make tacos, burritoes, nachos she can have it here to eat. She will be home on Friday.

Default Share your July 4th Menu ~~

We are in and out of the house today going to town to different 4th of July events for the kids. I need to make something I can cook and not have to worry about. I am making a pork roast in the good ole' crock pot. I smell it now and am getting hungry already! I also have some fresh cantalope I will cut up and steamed veggies.
