Thanks Ree!

I'm getting ready for the 4th of July a little early since our daughter Amy and her family are coming Wednesday and will be spending a few days of their precious vacation! I washed the dog already but I have a list a mile long of things I want to get done before they get here. At the top of the list is food: the planning, the gathering and the making! We are a hungry bunch who play hard and eat hearty. I've been watching my Favorite Food Site  for great recipes and so far, this is what I (actually Ree) has come up with...

Click on the recipes if Ree's ideas look good to you and it will take you right to her blog! So far, that's ideas for two main dishes and two desserts... I'll figure out the rest later!
I'll be following this list the next couple of days~

1. Plan menus
2. Shop for groceries
3. Spruce up  bedrooms
4. Shop for more groceries
5. Clean boat and de-spider web all surfaces
6. Blow leaves off patios and fluff cushions
7. Shop for more groceries
8. Buy new lake toys for GRANDsons
9. Shop for more groceries
10. Make cookies... go to store for chocolate chips


  1. sounds wonderful, Grandma. I can so relate. I love being the hostess with the mostest! My sister was here-weekend before last...this last weekend I had company again- was up early and bathed the dog before going to work...worked straight through until two p.m., came home- baked a cake...made appetizers...more company next weekend. I'll take it as a compliment when everyone wants to come to stay. xo, Cheryl

  2. Yes I have a similar list minus dog duties. Can hardly wait for everyone to get here. Have fun, know you will.

  3. I'll have to check out the Red Velvet sheet cake and the chicken tacos for sure.

    Enjoy the time with your kids and grands!

  4. those chicken tacos look YUM _ PRINTING!
