If you are like me, you are busy. And sometimes you don’t think about a menu until a day before an event. Well Independence Day is right around the corner! If you are looking for an easy menu to serve friends and family on the Fourth of July I have all you need right here.

I firmly believe the host/hostess of the party should be able to relax and have fun at their own party. With that in mind, each of these recipes has only a few ingredients and some things, like dressing and sauces can be made ahead!
The Main Course!
We start with a healthy main course and a vegetable side: Sesame Apricot Chicken Kabobs with Grilled Asparagus. The sauce for the chicken can be made a day ahead and the asparagus takes 2 minutes to prep and 5 to grill!
A Super Simple Side!
Jeweled Moroccan Couscous only takes minutes to cook and is made in one pot so clean up is a snap! And when that apricot sesame sauce runs onto the couscous…just amazing!
It doesn’t get more summery than this Peach, Plum and Cherry Salad!
These Berries in a Pastry Basket are the perfect red, white and blue dessert!
We are so fortunate to live in this country. Happy fourth friends. Be safe and eat great food! ~ Linda Spiker
