Perfect for any party, especially for the 4th of July, you can aslo drizzle with balsamic glaze (we love DeLallo brand), just in case you like those flavors. We do! But honestly, when we served them this week, I forgot the glaze (sigh). Do you ever do that? :) They were just as good!

Hospitality goals

One of our dreams when moving a couple years ago, was to have a house large enough for our family to flourish, as well as a great place to host and experience community. We downsized, so our place is small, not huge at all. But it works, and we love it. Squeezing in together in a cozy atmosphere is actually … quite lovely.

Happy 4th of July weekend ahead, and happy hosting with your loved ones … or neighbors or new friends?

Don’t get stuck always doing the same thing year after year! Change it up!
