First of all, Happy 4th of July to you all! I’m meeting up with my high school friends for a BBQ for lunch, and then this afternoon maybe I’ll see a movie. My family is grilling tonight, so lots of barbecues!
Normally, we make flag cake for 4th of July-Devil’s food cake, vanilla buttercream, and decorated with blueberries and raspberries.
Last year, I was trying to cut back on sugar so we made strawberry shortcakes instead (with a major fail from me-I put a little too much egg coating and ended with scrambled eggs on top-it was still delicious though!). This year, I decided on Blueberry Crisp because A) it’s the best thing ever and B) I had devil’s food cake for my birthday.
Blueberry crisp is so delicious, but that devil’s food cake sounds pretty perfect just about now!
Butternut squash and roast chicken soup, Paleo Zucchini fries, and balled honeydew. Everything is better in balled form. That’s a fact.
And ketchup is a food group. Here’s the zucchini fries recipe. They were sooo good, but a tad salty. I think we’re going to try the same recipe with other veggies as well. Suggestions?
And let’s keep this post light with probably the only reason you clicked on it-kitten pictures! Some of the previously really tiny kittens moved into the main nursery this week (and my favorite litter left 🙁 ). It’s crazy how grown up they are, given I bottle fed them a few weeks ago!
I bottle fed that little tabby in the front and he fell asleep on me!
What are you doing for 4th of July?
