fourth of july is upon us: some menu suggestions

We'll hopefully be in the middle of a field watching the fireworks this year, covered in a lot of bug spray.  I'm not quite sure what we'll be eating but since it will have been packed and picnic style it may be things like salsa, egg salad (a random craving I have during pregnancy), pimento cheese dip (another craving) and potentially brownies.

Looking back at summer celebrations past I have some recommendations for your menu of course.  Let this help your search for the perfect menu.

Grilled Okra with Paprika Shallot Dip: A surprisingly fun and tasty appetizer that won't last long.

Proscuitto and Blue Cheese Grilled Peaches.  Enough Said.

Poblano Burgers with Pickled Red Onions and Chipotle Cream Sauce  Pictured Above.  Delicious.

Cool Creamy Cole Slaw.  A standby I make often during the summer.  The dressing is far superior to anything you can find in a jar.

Orzo Salad with Spicy Buttermilk Dressing.  I remember this dressing so well and think I need to make this for our picnic.

Salted Caramel Brownies.   I've only made these once and they blew my mind.  Time to make them again.

Hope that helps!
