To be honest, I don’t have a lot of plans for the 4th this year. It’s more of a “go-with-the-flow” kind of weekend for us. Not that I mind that. Sometimes, one’s mind gets stressed from planning every moment of the day. The key here for me is to take advantage of the lack of plans, and relax…an activity of which I don’t do enough.
However, I won’t leave you in a lurch regarding those Fourth of July recipes. We’re friends, and I wouldn’t do that to you! I happen to have a few (okay, more than a few) I’ve gathered to graciously share with you, some of which I’ve tried, (some are posted on Tasty Eats At Home, after all) and some of which just look so darned delicious, I have them on my “must try” list. This way, you won’t have to resort to bringing the same ol’ coleslaw or potato salad to the party you are attending.

One more thing. You may see some changes to the way the blog looks in the next few days. No worries, it’s just me, slowly (I am not too technology-savvy, so these things take time) changing things up a bit, hopefully for the better. Feedback is always is appreciated though.
Happy Fourth of July!
