Hip Hip Hooray – A Delicious Independence Day Weekend Special

sparklers_flaresSaturday is the Fourth of July! Time to get together with friends and family for flares and fireworks … and, of course, a cookout. How will you make your holiday cookout special? Here are a few ideas.

Fireworks were invented in China – so – why not go with an Asian theme. My Summer Rolls are a delicious way to start the evening. If you’ve got a big crowd, add some fresh veggies and my Peanut-Sesame Dipping Sauce.

For the main event, everyone likes chicken. Fire up the grill and enjoy my A Hint of Asia Barbecued Chicken. Serve it with my tasty Crunchy Slaw with Cilantro, Mint and Peanuts and/or Asian Noodle Salad.

How about some homemade ice cream for dessert. The kids will be happy to turn the crank! Try my favorite Brown Sugar Yogurt Gelato. It’s delicious with fresh local strawberries. Or, go red, white and blue. Whip up batches of Brown Sugar Yogurt Gelato, Strawberry and Blueberry Gelato.

Have a great weekend and bon appétit!

How will you celebrate the Fourth? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going
