4th of July Themed Foods

The fourth is a big holiday in both mine and my husband’s family.  Both our family’s get together (his family gathering is always on the 3rd and mine is on the 4th).  We both love the 4th of July for many reasons… family, games, fireworks and of course… the food!  BBQs, amazing side dishes, refreshing drinks… it is fabulous :)

I decided to compile a list of some of the fun 4th of July themed foods that I have been seeing around.  I hope you can maybe use some of these or let the ideas spark one of your own!
