Hoist up the flag folks, it’s time to celebrate the 4th of July with a round-up in honor of our 50 states with 50 Red White and Blue Recipes.
Shish. Boom. Bang.
My dad was always the fire starter in our house. He would travel across state lines (shhh, don’t tell anyone) to buy fireworks that weren’t always, um, sold in our state. I’m not really sure where his fascination with fireworks stemmed from, I’ll have to ask him and let you know.
The ironic part of all of this is his nickname at work was “Safety Dave”, where he was in charge of a bunch of people teaching and preaching how to be safe and stay out of trouble. This was the same man that when nighttime drew near could be seen running down the street in his flip-flops after lighting fireworks for those of us at a safe distance to witness.
While he ultimately deemed safety a top priority, he always made sure there was a show to be had.
I’m taking his show of patriotic grandeur to the picnic/beach/folding table with this round-up of 50 Red White and Blue Recipes. 50 states, 50 recipes. A big thanks to my sister for pointing out that connection. She’s not just cute, she’s smart too.
If you’re thinking that just may not be enough to inspire you for cooking it up for the 4th of July, you must check out Jessica’s list of 70 Recipes for the 4th of July and take a gander back at Lori’s list of 100 Red White and Blue Recipes from a few years back, still ripe with stellar recipes that stand the test of fire cracking time.
Have a happy, and safe 4th of July above all, have a bang up time eating it up too. Like Jessica says, calories don’t count on the 4th, do they?
