Sunday Funday: 4th of July Fun!

Posted on Jun 30, 2013 by in Sunday Funday | 0 comments

Hi everyone! I hope your weekend has been a smashing success so far! I’ve actually been getting quite a lot done around our new house – I finished up a mini kitchen reno and did various other painting and updates – I’ll be sure to post photos soon!

But enough of that – can you guys believe that 4th of July is already this week (or Canada Day for my friends to the (just) North)? This summer has been flying by so far and I have to say that I’m looking forward to the second half of it as I am far less busy and can actually take some time to enjoy the benefits of summer days/nights.

As you can imagine, the interwebs have been flooded with gorgeous, festive dishes to serve during your festivities this week, so let’s get on with it!

Raw Strawberry Pie – My word, Dreena really hit it out of the park with this one! The ingredients are minimal and the end result looks positively mouth-watering!

Watermelon-Basil Gin Refresher – Ok, so I’m not a huge fan of gin, but I could totally imagine replacing it with vodka for a delightful little cocktail this 4th! I love the combo of watermelon and basil, and honestly, watermelon is one of those things that has always conjured images of Independence Day for me.

Lemon-Lime Guacamole – Guacamole is the best, y’all, and this recipe looks fabulous! Loads of fresh ingredients are used to make this always-a-hit dip, and your guests will totally dig dipping their chips or veggies in it at your party!

Homemade Vegan Sausages – I don’t know about you, but my 4th isn’t complete until the grill comes out. This homemade sausage recipe is perfect for grilling and is a great alternative to store-bought ones, just be sure to prep them well ahead of time.

Sriracha Hummus – I love me some spice, and this hummus definitely has it! Hummus is always a crowd-pleaser and the lovely red hue of this hummus is also festive! Just don’t let the pretty colors fool you into thinking it doesn’t pack heat!
