Make this week a memorable one with my Menu Plan Monday recipes. Your family won’t soon forget this week full of flavorful homemade meals!
This week we celebrate the 4th of July, our Independence Day. Being a proud American I wanted to share a menu that I am equally proud of. We are going to celebrate the red, white, and blue with some grilling, swimming and being outside with the family. This week’s Menu Plan Monday celebrates all these things and is full of tasty recipes that are reason enough to celebrate!
What is the 4th of July without cooking on the grill? Burgers, hot dogs, and anything else that you deem worthy of grill marks. My Apricot Chicken is a fun way to spice up regular grilled chicken. This sweet and savory way to prepare this protein is great all summer long. Pair this with a side of my Grilled Corn with Cilantro-Lime Butter. The pairing of these two off the hot grill will create fireworks right on your tastebuds!
Towards the end of the night, you must have something a little sweet to snack on while you watch the fireworks in the sky above. My Red, White, and Blue Berry Trifle is what this holiday is asking for! Layers of fresh berries, whipped cream, and angel food cake. This dessert is so well themed for the holiday and a perfect way to bring this fun-filled day to a close.
Happy Independence Day everyone. I hope that you have a special one that is packed full of family and food.
From my kitchen to yours. –Holly xo
