Recipes for a 4th of July Celebration

Celebrate Independence Day with a Red, White and Blue Themed Barbecue.

Gather family and friends and celebrate the hard earned freedom of America.  I’ve collected a fun group of red, white and blue recipes to help kick start your own special 4th of July festivities.

The fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.  The days are long and warm.  Family and friends have gathered for good food and conversation.  As night finally falls, the national anthem plays ti the sights and sound of fireworks.  My breath catches in my throat and I remember just how fortunate we are to be in America.  I remember our founding fathers and the wisdom they brought to creating this great country.  I remember my ancestors who immigrated from Ireland and Italy just two generations ago.  And I say a quick prayer of thanksgiving and protection for our soldiers serving throughout the world to insure our freedom and our way of life.  From Alaska to Florida and all points in between this is a great country, filled with great people – truly a reason to celebrate!
