Happy 4th of July!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!!

Luke has today and tomorrow off so our plan today is to not have too much of a plan and enjoy it! We started the morning off slow with some red, white, and blue pancakes (gluten-free pancakes with fresh strawberries and blueberries). Then tonight we will enjoy some grilled corn on the cob and steak kebabs. After that? I’m sure we will grab a picnic blanket or our camping chairs and  drive out to one of the many wonderful fireworks show displays in the area.


And my holiday tree has gone patriotic. Small sparkler red and blue fireworks (wire decorations) shoot from the moss grass stones at the based of the tree. The mini mason jars are filled with blue glass stones and alternating blue and white candles. (I thought I’d bought an American flag ribbon to go around the base but I was wrong 😦 I guess next year.)

If you are a last minute planner or got a last minute invite to a party today check out my Memorial Day treat. They are fast easy, dessert kebabs only assembly required.


Or if you have about an hour and a cake mix lying around check out my 4th of July funfetti cheesecake cookies.


What are your patriotic day plans?
