Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Independence Day, America! And a big apology to anyone who isn't American and suffering through the endless #Merica pride posts taking over Facebook and Instagram. There's no day injected with more patriotism than the Fourth of July and there's no better day to be American (yes we have our flaws but today is about freedom!! *cue bald eagles flying in a perfect blue sky*) Fireworks, hot dogs, and American flag decor are the typical accessories to this glorious day but I decided to change it up a bit this year. My family hosted our usual Fourth of July pool party and this year I contributed an American flag made of fruit kabobs. Light, delicious, & very American despite being healthy.

It was refreshing to take a break from the festivities going on outside and hide out in the kitchen to wash some blueberries & strawberries. The bananas were easy to slice and each of the fruits slid easily onto the kabob sticks. My mom noted that the kabob style was great in that my younger cousins ate all the fruits without a second thought, versus their usually picky style of rejecting most of what's been set in front of them.

Hope everyone's having a great independence day!
