Appetizers to Start
Fruit is the one food choice we all have in common and is part of every holiday menu. However, for our 4th of July celebration, we also get to include Watermelon and Cantaloupe. We have several family members who enjoy creating shaped bowls from the watermelon rind and filling it with a variety of fresh fruit balls and berries. Ct_mom shows us all how to do that in her article Fun Carved Watermelon Ideas. She even included how to make a watermelon keg in her article, which is something I have never done before and would love to try myself this year.
Main Course for Our 4th of July Meal
For our vegan daughter, we will prepare Grilled Black Bean Burgers. I was rather excited to discover that Black Bean Burger recipe by Tvyps since I am always searching for a meat alternative to serve for our daughter.
Drinks & 4th of July Dessert
I also make homemade, fresh squeezed lemonade for our gathering. My lemonade recipe is really very easy to prepare and is the most requested summertime drink in our home, but it is always fun to add a little fun to the mix with Mocktails by hlkljgk.
