The 4th of July is almost here. The 4th of July, Thanksgiving, George Washington’s birthday, Wednesday……it all means one thing to me:
I love food. I love to eat. I love any excuse to have a good meal. Like because its my birthday. Or Ben’s birthday. Or because its the 271st day of the year. Or because I only changed one poopy diaper for the day.
I’m not a huge fan of ‘summery’ foods, but with my new bfff..fff.ff Pinterest, I’ve found some pretty yummy ‘summery’ recipes. And I’m going to share them for random foto Friday because I’m hungry and because I’m going to eat my weight in big, fat ice cream cones this weekend.

My stomach is growling loud now.
Have a safe and Happy 4th! I hope you eat lots of good food and wear your Old Navy “USA” t-shirts and listen to Lee Greenwood.
Side (and semi-embarrassing) note: I cried at 4-H camp when they played “Proud to be American.” I was probably in the 4th grade. I’m pretty sure I didn’t even know what the lyrics were. That music is just sad, man!
