The 4th of July is like a mini reunion for my family. We get together every year at my aunt and uncle's lake cabin for an extended weekend with lots of food, our own version of team Olympics and fun. We team up in pairs of cousins and compete against each other in different games such as a swimming competition, bean bag toss, toss the egg and more. The winner takes home a fish-shaped stuffed animal and bragging rights. (It's a big deal!)
In between these games we take breaks for food - because you need to fuel yourself for these games. We've found the best way to feed a crowd of people is to set out appetizers and let people graze between different games. Here is what we plan on serving for apps this 4th of July:
- Zesty BBQ Pork Sliders
- Grilled Veggie Dippers & Dip
- Open-Faced Egg Rolls
- Shrimp Stars
- Watermelon & Blackberry Bites
I am hoping my team can take home the fish this year!
