Fourth of July is days away, and I’ve got nothing prepped! I haven’t even decided on a menu yet. Luckily, I have LHJ’s massive archive to help me out. Here are some of the recipes that I’m mulling over for Sunday:
Zesty Guacamole – As far as I’m concerned, it’s not a barbecue without fresh avocado guac and crunchy, thick-cut tortilla chips.
Hot Wings with Celery Fennel Apple Slaw – I love a good hot wing. This recipes calls for broiling, but since the grill will already fired up, I’ll just toss ‘em on!
For the Grill:
Ribs with Kansas City Barbecue Sauce – Finger licking good! (Note to self: Stock up on paper towels!)
The Perfect Burger with Herb Butter – Can’t celebrate the 4th of July with burgers…it’s un-American!
Corn and Zucchini Pasta Salad – I love this salad, using two of my favorite summer staples.
Chopped Salad with Spiced Pecans – The spiced pecans give this salad a crunchy kick.
Pound Cake with Fresh Berries and Whipped Cream – This cake is fresh, seasonal, AND patriotic. What more could you ask for on the 4th of July?
Lemon Curd Tarlets – Lemon tarts–hands down my fave dessert.
