The 4th of July is right around the corner in the United States, so that means its time to start planning a menu for all of the celebrating! The recipes I’ve been posting this past month make a perfect Independence day meal for everyone to enjoy. It’s easy to make and healthy so that no-one will be too tired to run around with sparklers afterword.
