My family always has a big cookout on the evening of the 4th of July – hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, pink lemonade, chips, baked beans, deviled eggs, homemade ice cream… Yum!!! We really stuff ourselves! It’s enough food to make you want to save room for it all the whole day leading up to the dinner. So as an attempt to eliminate a meal before the cookout, we started having a waffle brunch on the 4th of July, and it is becoming a tradition we look forward to almost as much as the cookout.
Our menu includes waffles, blueberries, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, and whipped cream. That’s it!
The berries and cream make it a pretty red, white, and blue meal that is delicious and helps us get through the day without spoiling our appetites so that we can pig out to our hearts’ content at our evening cookout – as is patriotic and American! Happy 4th of July!
