We spent the 3rd and 4th at the cottage. Last minute, I decided to try making the Fourth of July Cake I posted a few Fridays ago. It turned out fine, especially for what was really my first attempt at a decorated, put together cake, but I learned a few things. 1) Put more frosting in between each layer. 2) Don't expect it to do well when you take it in the car for a couple hours then leave it on the counter in the heat. Nonetheless, it was fun and delicious!
Stromboli. This time it was filled with ham, pepperoni, olives (for some of us), cheese and mixed vegetables (instead of just peas). I loved the different vegetables in there, especially the corn which added a little sweetness.
Chicken Salad Sandwiches were a hit. My husband said usually a chicken salad sandwich wouldn't be his favorite but he really enjoyed these. We also had Creamy Corn Salad again. Last week wasn't a fluke, I really enjoy this salad!
Homemade Baked Beans. This is such a simple, delightful, summery meal.
Sweet Hawaiian Pizza because I couldn't find green peppers for a decent price. Instead we had Pepperoni Pizza which was good, as always, especially since my husband assembled it again.
