4th of July Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner - July 2, 2021


Happy 4th of July Weekend!

This week we’re celebrating 4th of July weekend with some fun holiday themed recipes!

What plans do you have for this Holiday weekend?

Comment below to share with me!


Blueberry Strawberry Greek Yogurt Parfait 


Red White and Blue Parfaits – Very Patriotic!

What better way to celebrate this Red White and Blue weekend with themed Red White and Blue Parfaits!

It’s all about the presentation for this recipe. It’s SUPER important to have the proper serving glass to see all pretty colorful layers.

The Parfaits recipe calls for regular or Greek yogurt, I personally am a big fan of Greek yogurt, it’s a texture thing for me.

This time of year, should be really easy to get fresh blueberries and strawberries, but if you’re in a pinch, you can thaw frozen ones and use them in this presentation. They’re not going to be as firm as fresh but they’ll do in a pinch!


Club Sandwich 


Club Sandwich - 3 MEATS

I love the IDEA of a club sandwich, but I it’s definitely not something I make at home very often simply because it’s such a LARGE sandwich. What can I say, I’m a grazer.

That said, this Club Sandwich Recipe is PERFECT if you’re having company over and you want something delicious and easy to munch on.

In this particular recipe Marjorie is using 3 meats: turkey, ham and bacon. If you wanted to swap them out for different types, or even make it a veggie club sandwich, certainly feel free to make adjustments as you like.

You could even add avocado! I’m such a sucker for avocado, seriously - all the time!

One thing I would suggest, is to use Dave’s Killer Bread. I don’t eat bread all that often, but when I do, it’s Dave’s Killer Bread.



Cheeseburger Soup Recipe


Cheeseburger Soup Recipe – What to do with your leftovers?

It’s a holiday weekend and I know so many families will be firing up their grills, so I figure you probably don’t need another burger recipe.

But what you will likely need is a recipe for turning your leftover hamburgers into something tasty!

Cue Cheeseburger Soup Recipe!

This is a very rich soup with lots of delicious butter, cream, and cheese; definitely a treat every once in a while.

If you’re looking for a lighter soup, you could make this soup without the whole milk or half and half, and sub in blended dried mushrooms for a creamy texture.

I’d call this soup comfort food!


Thanks again for joining us on this fun journey.
