Red, White, and Blue Menu, part 2

I’ve gotten some great pins added to my Fourth of July Pinterest board over the last week or so. Check out the goodies:, found on, found on

This one is a little non-traditional, but I thought it was a really fun idea, and different is always good, right?, found on, found on

And because these little guys are too cute to pass up, I had to toss them in too.  Especially now that Kellogg’s makes gluten free rice crispies – this pleasure that has been denied us celiacs for far too long is once again within reach!!,,

And last but not least, this shirt is amazing. It’s probably too late to order it and get in time for this year’s party, but it’s on my list for next year!

Happy birthday, America!!
