Happy 4th of July!

IMG_20110703_202043Happy 4th of July to my friends in the States (and Happy Monday to everyone else!) :)

Hope everyone has a great day.  I think I’ve got some fireworks fatigue (late night last night watching them at the pictured event at the outdoor symphony and looks to be another late one tonight), so I think I’ll take a small breather today.

IMG_20110703_213621But I will link over to the Mystery Lovers’ Kitchen, which has had some great cookout/picnic food recently! (I’m Riley there and post every Wednesday if you enjoy quick and easy recipes.)

For  barbecue-related recipes try:
Riley's Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce
Avery's Burgers and Blue
Cleo's Fire-fighters Ribs
Avery's Strawberry Shortcake (Gluten-free)

Today’s post has a nice round-up of recipes for cookouts.

And Cleo Coyle has an amazing cake for the 4th.

To the non-cooks—happy writing!  Hope you’ll have lots of ideas percolating today. :)
