Coming up this weekend are two very important holidays in the Johnston household—Canada Day and Independence Day. I think it is so fun that the national holidays for both mine and Babyface’s home countries happen right around the same time of year. Even though Babyface is solidly an American resident now, we like to keep the Canadian pride alive in our house and celebrate Canada Day. And then, three days later we get to celebrate my great country with the 4th of July!
I love these two holidays so much because for us it always means a nice get together with family with lots of great food, some drinks and a decent amount of swimming. I think cooking for holidays is so fun because you get to be festive and cheesy! Bring on the red, white and blue sprinkles and the maple-leaf cookie cutter.
I’ve been stashing a lot of great holiday recipes in my Pinterest account, and thought I’d share what I’m looking forward to making this holiday weekend.
