Hope you have been having a wonderful time celebrating Independence Day.
My Sister-in-Law and Brother-in-Law created quite a celebratory feast for us this afternoon. My favorite grilled item is kielbasa, so that is all that I really cared about! (But it most definitely was not all that I ate!) The rest of the family was fortunate that there was more than enough to go around, because I didn't have to fight anyone for their portion. Dessert was grilled pineapple with vanilla ice cream. It was fantastic.
I was asked to bring an appetizer. If there is a holiday being celebrated, it can be assumed I am going to try my very best to make whatever I bring look festive.
As I was brainstorming, Hubby said, "just put what you make in a festive bowl.
"But I want the FOOD to be festive."
"You can put sparklers on top!"
"Oooooh, that sounds fun... but no."
The sparklers really would have been fun. I'm just a party pooper.
I finally decided to create Patriotic Berry Appetizers. (If you can come up with a better name, let me know!)
They were simple, pretty, yummy, and FESTIVE.
Just what I wanted.
