“America the Beautiful”
It’s Independence Day week! I have included a lot of recipes this week for a few reasons. 1) There are recipes that should be perfect for your holiday celebration, such as Baby Back Ribs with Classic Slaw, Chicago Style Dogs and American Cherry Pie. Add a fresh salad and freshly cut fruit (like watermelon…my favorite), and you have a party! 2) I’ve included a middle Eastern spice mixture that I use in two of this week’s recipes to represent how beautifully multi-cultural this nation is! 3) All the “Nourishing Additions” are recipes from previous meal plans. Many times I have you make these recipes yet you don’t have many recipes using them unless you find ways to use them on your own. This week’s recipes feature using these Nourishing Additions and enjoying their bountiful nourishment. If you don’t have these recipes made, you can either eliminate them from the recipe, or use store-bought versions (especially for mayonnaise and ketchup). I’ve also included the recipes and shopping list items (noted as extras) if you want to make them this week. Happy 4th!
**The picture shown is just a pretty 4th of July food picture and is actually not part of this week’s meal plan because I left all this week’s picture recipes on my house computer, which I am not able to use right now. BUT, I found this picture on Pinterest and I got a great idea that I will probably try for our 4th of July celebration and that is to take strawberries, blueberries, marshmallows (almost always forbidden in our house, but we can compromise a little for a holiday), and maybe the brownies and GRILL THEM!!! Let’s all try it and comment here how it turned out!
