Red, White & Delicious

Happy 4th of July! With hordes of tourists descending upon DC, plus temperatures still hovering around the 100-degree mark, Stephen and I are as grateful as ever that we can watch the national fireworks show, along with others in the area, right from our apartment building. While I definitely love this holiday and have braved the in-city festivities plenty of times, this year, I'd rather do without the crowds and especially the hot, stuffy portable toilets -- yuck!

What I won't do without? Tasty eats and treats like the ones below. Visit my Food & Drink inspiration board on Pinterest for links to these recipes, plus tons more. (For what it's worth, I tried embedding individual links into this post, but alas, Blogger appeared to be suffering from a major case of the unfriendlies.)

How are you celebrating today?


  1. Happy Fourth! Lucky you to have a great view of the fireworks show from your apartment. I want to try that red, white & blue punch and all of the watermelon dishes you pinned :)

  2. Yum! All those treats look delicious but I specially love the watermelon stars!

    Happy 4th of July and enjoy the fireworks!

  3. I am going to take it easy today and play catch up while I am trying to take it easy. The food is looking delicious and it is sweltering outside! ARGH!
