Happy belated 4th to all ya’ll Americans! And regardless of where you’re from I hope your day was filled with pie and sparkly things anyway (because who doesn’t want that) In typical Meghan fashion I kept it pretty low key- actually if I’m being honest we did all our celebrating on the 2nd & 3rd because homegirl right here was not about to stay up late 3 nights in a row (LOL) On Saturday I met my friends in Hermosa for some beach time & a BBQ (legit guys I ate so much I looked like Blake Lively’s 4th of July pictures and she’s PREGNANT) On Sunday I had my friends over for a backyard BBQ fit for wayyyyyy more people…but I have like 4 friends sooooo….whatever #Leftovers.
Anyways- I didn’t get pictures of our whole spread (like the turkey burgers I burned) and I’m actually so pissed because I made a RED, WHITE AND BLUE POTATO SALAD! I’m so fucking Pinterest it hurts. Thankfully I was smart enough to snap some pics of the INSANE charcuterie board Ross &Kyle put together. I wish I had something for size reference so you guys could see how MASSIVE it was. And yes we ate it all. I told Ross he’s never allowed to make those nuts again because I’m pretty sure he sprinkled crack on them (kidding). Speaking of crack! Desserts! Naturally I had to make Ina’s Flag Cake but I halved the recipe because #nonewfriends
Per my guests requests’ I also made a cherry pie with an all butter crust (#buttah) and a lattice top because it makes me feel like I have my life together. There is nothing more American than pie. Except maybe American Pie .
Watermelon is so bašïç so I thought why not amp it up and try way too hard (my life motto) and squeeze some lime & fresh mint on that bad boy? Naturally I couldn’t stop there and I suggested we cut some pieces into star shapes, thankfully Ross is a crafty boy and he whipped these up. Snaps for Rossy!!!!
What did YOU guys eat this 4th of July? Oh I guess I should ask you what you did like “turn up” wise but I’m actually just really curious what you ate… & if it was just another Monday for ya’ll- lemme know what YOUR country eats to celebrate their day!
