Fourth of July Recipe Round-Up!!

Well, the 4th of July is less than a week away! I think it’s time we all start menu planning, don’t you? Of course I’m saying this while being a slight hypocrite; were I to be spending the holiday at home, I’d probably already know what I’d be making. However, Matt and I are spending the 4th on vacation in a cute little beach cottage, and I’m making it a point to get to know the local fishmongers and farmer’s markets/stands in the next few days. Then I’m sure I’ll play it by ear. But I wanted to post some ideas, some of which I may use myself! Enjoy!
