Fourth of July

flagcake

As always, I like to have a little party on 4th of July - after all, it's much more fun to celebrate the American national day than our own. So, a few of our friends came over for a nice potluck picnic.

We had tons of delicious food, including chicken wings, barbecued ribs, fried chicken, caesar salad, cole slaw, macaroni and cheese, potato wedges with cheese and bacon and tons of dipping sauces. And as you can see in the first photo, a flag cake! It was great fun to make - I'll post the recipe soon.

And of course, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Titus wore some stars, and enjoyed his very first Independence Day.

Thank you, Anne, for your fondness for America and for celebrating our holiday. I really appreciate it. I know you do it yearly and it touches me very nicely. Thank you! Great meal!

Yum, sounds like a lot of the same things we ate today. How cute is Titus? I'm glad you are still celebrating. I'm also glad that I got to celebrate with you out here too (boy was that a long time ago).

Wow that's a whole lot of food. I wish I could have been at YOUR place on the 4th of July. Will you be posting the recipes?

Really cute. Amazing you can keep up a blog with the little cutie.

cute outfit. I got mine a little 4th outfit from Hannah Andersson (on sale!) I know that's at least a swedish-inspired company, but is it actually IN Sweden?

Sara, you'd think so! But no, I've never seen it here, and when I've looked for info, it doesn't seem to be available here...
