Happy 4th of July!

K and Z on rooftop in Fells Point watching fireworks

In the world of Z & K the Fourth of July in Fells always means fireworks on the roof/roof deck. They are set off in the Inner Harbor and with a high vantage point we can get a great view away from all the crowds.

I’ll be working until 6pm today with no extravagant celebration plans thereafter, but for those heading to a cookout or bbq of some kind, this post is for you.

Throughout the past week I’ve seen numerous patriotic Pinterest posts and recipe round-ups galore.

Here are some of my favorite festive finds from around the web. To find out more, click on the link to be taken to the original site/recipe!

I enjoy themes/theme parties and I love how creative people can be coming up with recipes. If you’re stuck for what to bring to tonight’s BBQ or potluck, I can only hope something above inspired you!

I want to know…

Any big plans for tonight? Going to a bbq? Watching fireworks? If so, where?
