What's On the Menu

My plate!
Today, I'm participating in a link up with Andrea over at Momfessionals. I just adore her blog, and you will too! Today's theme is What's on the menu, so I wanted to give you a taste (pun intended!) of what  we had for the 4th of July! I will throw in some decor too, so you can feel like you were there with us!

First of all, the weather was absolutely perfect. The humidity that we had been having vanished, and it was breezy, sunny, and wonderful.


I took some full table shots, so you might not be able to see everything so I will list it here.

  • Hamburgers/Hot dogs
  • Poppy seed coleslaw
  • Cucumber and onions in Greek yogurt
  • Baked beans
  • Mac n cheese
  • Dirty rice (if loving this is wrong, I don't want to be right!) 
  • Pickle/relish tray
  • Hot dog chili (homemade!) 
  • Fruit salad
For drinks, we had lemonade, mint tea, iced tea, and different varieties of pop. We also set out bottles of water!


This year, my mom and I decided it would be fun to wrap our silverware. So one evening, (basically one episode of 7th Heaven!) I rolled the silverware in a napkin and tied it with a festive read ribbon. The basket, we bought at the Amish auction for a whopping $4. The silverware went in there, as well as extra napkins, and the dessert silverware. The flag tablecloth was something that my mom had from years ago. I found the patriotic bucket in our shed, and we used that to put our drinks in! 

It was a great day spent with family and friends! 

I'd love to see what was on your menu! Leave me a comment and let me know! Thanks, Andrea for the link up!
