4th of July Food

4th of July Food Collage

This year for 4th of July I have themed food in the shape of an eagle, the United States, fireworks, and the American Flag. All of these feature rice and most have rice and salsa which is a new favorite combination in my house.

For other ideas see my post from last year of 14 USA Patriotic meals.

This is my second attempt at making a fireworks themed meal. As with last years meal you probably did not know that the black beans were supposed to represent fireworks. But my niece enjoyed this meal anyway.
