Happy Independence Day!!!

Happy 4th of July!!  Today we celebrate our independence as a country.    Let us give thanks to our ancestors!!  For without them, we would never have the freedoms we as a nation, enjoy today!!

I am not doing anything spectacular trust me, I'm having a small get together with my best friend and her family. I will be serving traditional hots and hamburgers along with sides. 
The holiday falling right smack in the middle of the week literally, it makes it difficult for a working mom to do anything amazingly special like I prefer.  So, I'm keeping it easy and simple.
My best friend is bringing her famous hamburgers and a few side salads.  I just finished making  Diane's Mom's Potato Salad and my famous baked beans.  I will also be making Stephanie's  Lemon Sheet Cake and Frosting and topping it with fresh raspberries and blueberries and shaved white chocolate... well just because!! Chips, dip and a few extras will round out our meal!!
I have to tell you, I found these amazingly obscene size super hot dogs at Aldi's. 
The kids keep telling me, "ewwww, seriously mom, gross", because I keep saying, "OMG, look at the size of these wieners"? ;-)

So my friends, enjoy your day, laugh with friends, play games, or just relax... as we are going to as well!!  
Happy Independence Day!!!

Till next time!!

    I had to report back that the kids & I made your vanilla lemon buttercream today to frost a sheet cake (couldn't be bothered with cupscakes -- it's just too hot).

    I was great! Thanks so much!
