It’s that time of year again! We here at Fireside Furniture love the summer, and are also so excited to get outside and share a picnic or barbecue with friends and family.
And as you may already know from some of our previous articles, we love to eat. (We also have a ton of great options for kitchen tables and dining room sets.) But perhaps you, like so many others, are eating outside for Independence Day (and shooting off some fireworks). So this year, we’re going to look at a few of our favorite recipes across the web for summertime festivities.
Fourth of July is a time for celebration with family
We all know the classic 4th of July meal is hot dogs and hamburgers, right? But what’s the best way of making them? Let’s go with the (self-styled) “best burger ever” recipe, and a real American institution: the Chicago-style hot dog. However you choose to top yours, though, is up to you.
Not in the mood for burgers or dogs? How about these Memphis-style baby back ribs instead?
Next up is side dishes. Now, we believe that no salad is complete without honoring the American Flag, and we found the perfect one: a watermelon feta flag salad.
But what if salad isn’t your thing? Then let’s get some cornmeal hush puppies right over to you.
And for dessert, how about this no-bake cheesecake flag? Sweet, refreshing, and patriotic! (Or you can always go with the most American of desserts, Apple Pie — with a “kitchen-tested” recipe from Pillsbury.
Happy 4th of July!
No matter what you’re doing to celebrate–and what you’re eating–we hope you stay safe and healthy. And if you’re in the mood to spruce up your house this summer, visit our showroom on Route 23 in Pompton Plains, New Jersey–where we definitely have some great options for family rooms, dens, and entertainment centers.
Happy 4th of July from your friends at Fireside Furniture! And enjoy the summer!
