Here's the menu so far. And yes, it's missing the main attraction (meat), but I still have to think about that a little. It's way too hot here to stand outside over a grill unless you want to. I'm leaning towards a big pot of homemade chicken and dumplings for the main. Besides, we grill so often that it's nothing special, it's just something we do.
Menu so far:
Cheesy Zucchini Bake
Coca Cola Cake (addorned w/ those precious little flag toothpicks of course)
Now you tell me, don't you think a big pot of chicken and dumplings will be ok for the main? It'll be like we're eating at Cracker Barrel except with a pool out the back door for us to enjoy and us lounging around indoors and out as we please. No traveling required!
I am seriously thinking about making myself a personal collection of homemade banners for different occassions. Not like the one above (image I found online), but the triangle cloth banners that you drape across and they are meant to be reused for years. I'm seeing a lot online. I would like to make at least one for each holiday and of course a bright and cheery birthday one, anniversary one, maybe even one for no special occassion...just to hang?
